The thesis consists of two volumes. Volume One: This volume consists of three chapters: the first, a literature review of the prevalence of abuse within the deaf and hard of hearing population; the second is a qualitative study using grounded theory exploring professionals’ experiences when working with deaf offenders with mental health difficulties; the third chapter comprises a public domain briefing document which briefly provides a plain language explanation of both the literature review and the empirical paper. Volume Two: The second volume contains five forensic clinical practice reports (FCPR). The first contains the case of a 16-year-old girl in a low secure adolescent unit presenting with self-injurious behaviours and aggression, formulated from both psychodynamic and behavioural perspectives. The second FCPR is an evaluation of the Structured Assessment for Violence in Youth (SAVRY) when used in a low secure adolescent service to predict future aggression. The third report is a single-case experimental design investigating the effectiveness of individual therapy using Cognitive Behavioural principles with a 17-year-old female presenting with low mood. The fourth FCPR presents a case study of a 53-year-old Deaf female with paranoid schizophrenia, formulated using narrative principles. The final report is an abstract of an oral presentation of a case study involving a 27 year old female within a prison based Offender Personality Disorder Pathway (OPDP) comprising a detailed assessment, formulated from a psychodynamic perspective, and recommendations for interventions.
