The thesis consists of two volumes. Volume I: This volume has three parts. This first part consists of a systematic literature review investigating the evidence for psychological interventions for adults with advanced cancer experiencing psychological distress. This is followed by an empirical study exploring the experience of Schwartz Center Rounds® amongst hospice staff, as an initiative to promote compassionate healthcare. Finally, a public domain briefing document provides an accessible summary of the literature review and empirical paper. Volume II: Five clinical practice reports are presented in this volume. The first report details the case of 30-year-old woman experiencing depression and self-harming behaviours, formulated from cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic perspectives. The second report presents a service development needs assessment, designed to identify the learning and developmental needs of service users in a women's medium secure forensic service. The third report details the case of 28-year-old male with a mild learning disability and anxiety, offering formulation and detailing intervention using the compassion-focused model of shame. The fourth report describes how leadership and consultancy competencies were gained as a Trainee Clinical Psychologist working in a Community Macmillan Specialist Palliative Care Team. The fifth is an abstract of an oral presentation given to describe the case of a 10-year-old girl with anxiety associated with Diabetes Mellitus (Type 1).
