This thesis, submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements of the degree of Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, consists of two volumes. Volume One is a research component, consisting of a systematic review and meta-analysis, an empirical study and a public dissemination document. Volume Two is a clinical component, consisting of five clinical practice reports. The first paper in Volume One is a meta-analysis of research on the effectiveness of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy to reduce binge eating episode frequency in individuals with sub- and full-threshold Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder. The second paper is an empirical research study of the effectiveness of mindfulness for improving novel food acceptance in 10-12-year-olds. The third paper is a summary report for the dissemination of findings by the public and other stakeholders. The first report in Volume Two is a case formulation, of a 36-year-old male with a mild learning disability presenting with angry outbursts, from cognitive behavioural and systemic perspectives. The second report is an audit of adherence to a NICE Quality Standard on Anxiety Disorders in a community service for adults with learning disabilities. Report three is a case study of a 28-year-old female with Borderline Personality Disorder, referred to a Complex Care Service for low mood, anger and shame. The fourth report is a single case experimental design evaluating the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioural work with an 8-year-old female with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. The final report summarises the (neuropsychological) assessment of a 60-year-old female with Alzheimer's Disease.
