Judd (1994) identified four modes of thought that were incorporated into the SILM® model (Judd 2000). The model was designed to introduce complex psychological concepts in a simple and straightforward way without the need for extensive study. It served as a framework to facilitate participants on a motivational course to explore and apply their full potential towards achievement of goals. Subsequently Judd (2005) sought to investigate the validity of the SILM® model. Different modes of thought, the concept emotion and the construct time were operationalized as scale items in a questionnaire administered on-line. The findings of the pilot study suggest that the integrative model has some validity and suggestions are made for further research and development.

Judd proposes a simplistic model for the understanding and management of the complex mind-body dynamic. His aim is to empower the individual to be more in control of both their mental and physical experience. He argues that strength within can grow from the understanding and development of self-knowledge. The manual explains how this can be achieeved by challenging negative patterns of behaviour and thought. The techniques can be applied in sport, sales, business and for coping with major events or changes in life.

JUDD, L.S. (2010). Level B Full: Work-based Project

This project was designed to test construct and convergent validity of the SILM® Coaching scale with several existing psychometric tests¦, including the 16FP5; Golden Personality Type Profile; Hogan Development Survey; MBTI;

Following a pilot study conducted by Judd (2006) this investigation seeks to develop further a framework integrating research-based psychological knowledge to underpin Coaching Psychology practice.

JUDD, L.S. (1999). An Investigation into the Subjective Experience of Counselling Psychologists with regard to Personal Philosophical Beliefs and the Perceived Theoretical Orientation of their Training and Practice Environments. Unpublished MSc Counselling Psychology Dissertation.

Whilst undertaking a post graduate degree in Counselling Psychology Judd (1999) noted the apparent disparity between different counselling theoretical models. It was also the case that trainees received training in only two dominant theoretical models chosen from several taught. Judd questioned what impact different practices and training environments might have on practitioners and trainees.

JUDD, L.S. (1986). Towards a general Integration/Alienation scale. Unpublished BSc Psychology Project.

An interest in personal development led Judd (1986) to investigate the concept of alienation. Historically the term is used to describe a negative consequence of social experience. Schact (1974) argues that the '...individual should be free to engage in self-directed productive activity'. Self-expression in work leads to satisfaction and fulfillment necessary for the development of personality. 'Subjection to the control of other men introduces an element of alieness into one's relation to the objective manifestations of oneself.' Schact, develops this theme introducing the concept of "self-alienation," a '...disparity between one's actual condition and one's essential or ideal nature.' (pp. 259-266) Judd sought to investigate the validity of these constructs by means of respondents' agreement or disagreement with representative scale items on a questionnaire. Scale item construction also drew upon the work of Davitz (1968) , in particular his concept of RELATEDNESS and the constructs Moving Away; Moving Against and Moving Toward.
