CAT Case Series Research - in intellectual disability (community and forensic) services

 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:

  • To evaluate the outcome of routine interventions using Cognitive Analytic Therapy with people with Intellectual Disabilities,
  • To identify the key components of Cognitive Analytic interventions leading to beneficial outcomes for people with Intellectual  Disabilities and their support network, and 
  • To develop a research methodology and resources for subsequent larger scale studies.

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.
