Texte du rabat

Based on the findings of several in-depth research studies and on the author's long experience of working with people with dementia, this groundbreaking book provides fresh perspectives on the condition. Showing how evidence is lacking to support the model of dementia as a disease, the book explores the possibilities of psychological intervention for remediable or enduring cognitive losses.

Résumé
Drawing on contemporary theoretical concepts including multiple selves, personal construct theory, intrapsychic survival and the effect of historical and political factors on older people's well being, the author calls for a more positive and constructive approach to improving the lives of people with dementia.
