Teri, Linda; Gallagher-Thompson, Dolores
Gerontologist, v31 n3 p413-16 Jun 1991
Presents two strategies for treating depression in Alzheimer's patients: cognitive therapy for mildly demented adults which challenges patient's negative cognitions to reduce distortions and enable patient to generate more adaptive ways of viewing specific events; and behavioral intervention for moderately or severely demented adults which attempts to modify person-environment interactions by increasing positive activities and decreasing negative ones.
