This thesis is concerned with intrusive imagery within psychological disorders, and the study of this in relation to attachment theory. Part one is a narrative literature review of direct imagery interventions, such as imaginal exposure and imagery rescripting, for psychological disorders that are not post-traumatic stress disorder or acute stress disorder. This review serves as a reference guide for clinicians to help them navigate the literature on imagery interventions. Part two is an experimental study using a paired-associate methodology to investigate the association between attachment orientation and the experience of intrusive and involuntary imagery. This study elicits involuntary imagery within a laboratory context with members of the general population. Part three is a critical appraisal of the thesis process that reflects upon research processes with reference to the broader context of clinical psychology in general.
