Volume One consists of three parts. The first is a systematic literature review of non-pharmacological treatment for individuals with intellectual disabilities and ‘personality disorder’. The second part presents an empirical study where women with intellectual disabilities and offending behaviour were interviewed to explore their housing experiences and their hopes for future home and care environments. Interpretive phenomenological analysis was utilised to explore their experiences in detail. The final part is a public domain briefing document, offering an accessible summary of the empirical study and systematic review. Volume Two contains five clinical practice reports (CPR). The first CPR presents a CBT and psychodynamic formulation of 33- year-old male’s generalised anxiety. The second CPR presents a qualitative service evaluation; Staff experiences of communicating with other staff in a secure forensic hospital. The third CPR outlines an example of psychological consultation with staff at a locked residential care home for men with intellectual disabilities. The fourth CPR presents a single case experimental design assessing the effectiveness of a cognitive behavioural intervention for an 80-year-old female experiencing obsessive-compulsive disorder. The final report is the abstract of an oral presentation describing how acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) was used to support a 15-year-old female experiencing anxiety.
