A number of individual case studies and theoretical papers have been published to date. The next step in assessing outcome is to develop a standardised approach to data collection through a case series. The study we propose (and will get ethical approval before we proceed) seeks:
The study will utilise a mixed methods case series design, in which adult clients receive routine assessment and cognitive analytic intervention from qualified and ACAT accredited clinicians. The proposed case series will compare standardised outcomes in routine clinical practice across a number of services using quantitative methods and include thematic analysis of interviews with key informants.
Proposal projections assume that demographical and semantic differential data collection will commence in June 2016 and continue for the duration of the SR groups concerned until November 2016. Interviews with case subjects will be carried out in December 2016.
Findings will also be circulated via the CAT and LD SIG and via ACAT.
This research will be hosted by Liverpool University.
