This thesis explores staff's experiences of receiving facilitated formulation for their clinical work with people with intellectual disabilities. Chapter Two presents a systematic review of research exploring staff's experiences of receiving team formulation and systemic consultation (facilitated formulation) for their direct work with clients with intellectual disabilities. The review highlighted a lack of qualitative research into team formulation in this area, and no investigation of approaches that helped staff formulate relationships with their clients explicitly. This formed part of the rationale for the empirical paper (Chapter Three), which details a qualitative study on care staff's experiences of receiving contextual reformulation, a Cognitive Analytic (CAT) model of team formulation that includes formulating staff relationships with clients, in this case, people with intellectual disabilities who exhibit behaviours that challenge. Chapter Four, (Integration, Impact and Dissemination), integrates the findings from Chapters Two and Three, and discusses the study's implications and plans for dissemination.
