Could family therapy be used for families affected by dementia?
This project is still at ideas stage. We will develop a study to test whether it is feasible/acceptable to offer family therapy support to people affected by dementia. Family therapy is used to good effect in other physical health conditions, and we think there’s potential for this to be really helpful for families with dementia – especially those where there are complex relationship dynamics.
The volunteers would hopefully:
18th January 2019
17th February 2019
University of Stirling
Led by myself (academic and family therapist), but working with other academic researchers (for example Dr Jane Robertson) we will co-design the study.
All of research
Mentoring will be offered to volunteers by a researcher who has extensive experience of working with consumers.
Payment will be offered for continued involvement if the project is funded.
Out of pocket expenses will be paid.
