This thesis comprising both research and clinical volumes is submitted in partial fulfillment of the degree of Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) at the University of Birmingham. Volume I consists of a literature review, an empirical paper and a public domain briefing paper. The literature review provides a systematic review of the literature on the relationship between behavioural difficulties, cognitions and well-being in parents of individuals with intellectual disabilities from 2005 onwards. The empirical paper initially examined the applicability of the Challenging Behaviour Perception Questionnaire (CBPQ; Williams & Rose, 2007) to mothers of individuals with intellectual disabilities. The CBPQ was employed to examine whether maternal perceptions of challenging behaviour mediated the effect of challenging behaviour on stress in mothers of children and young adults with intellectual disabilities. Finally, the public domain briefing paper provides an accessible summary of the empirical paper. Volume II consists of five clinical practice reports relating to clinical work conducted whilst on placement in a Child mental health, Adult mental health, Learning disability and Older adult memory service.
