Mosher-Ashley, Pearl M.
Gerontologist, v34 n2 p180-89 Apr 1994
Studied 180 community and nursing home clients who received psychotherapy through community mental health center program. Reviewed case records to identify factors associated with persistence in therapy and drop-out patterns. Persistence in treatment was associated with nursing home residence, religious beliefs, and receiving therapy at home; not with self-referral, type of psychiatric diagnosis, age, or gender.
