This portfolio thesis has three parts. Part one is a systematic literature review in which an analysis is conducted on existing research exploring asylum seekers’ and refugees’ beliefs and experiences of interventions for trauma-related distress. A systematic database search identified 18 studies to be reviewed. Narrative Synthesis is used to analyse the findings, and methodological quality is evaluated. The clinical implications for service design and directions for future research are also discussed. Part two is an empirical paper which uses Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis to explore interpreters’ experiences of working in mental health settings and how compassion may be experienced in their role. The findings are discussed in relation to psychological frameworks of compassion, and implications for practice and training, as well as recommendations for future research, are considered. Part three comprises the appendices supporting the systematic literature review and the empirical paper. A reflective statement considering the process of the research, as well an epistemological statement, are also included.
