Volume I has three chapters. Chapter one presents a systematic meta-synthesis which reviews fourteen qualitative research articles about mental health professionals’ experiences of patient suicide. The analysis illustrates an underlying sense of bereavement, fear and transformation. Chapter two presents an empirical research paper which explores psychotherapists’ experiences of therapy endings. The analysis suggests therapists and patients can have an intimate professional relationship which can be differentially affecting for both after the therapy ends. Chapter three is a public dissemination document which gives an accessible overview of chapters one and two. Volume II contains five clinical practice reports. The first report details the case of a woman experiencing Anxiety, Depression and suicidal ideation; formulated from two psychological models. The second report presents a service evaluation assessing non attendance rates of psychological services assessment appointments and ways of improving engagement in adult secondary community mental health teams (CMHT’s). The third report presents a psychological consultancy led case of a woman with challenging behaviour. The fifth report details a single-case experimental design of a woman with a mild learning difficulty and re-current stress induced vomiting. The fifth presents an abstract of an oral presentation about a woman experiencing low mood and binge eating.
