This book is a comprehensive evidence-based guide for counseling Alzheimer's caregivers. It describes an approach developed by the staff of New York University School of Medicine's Alzheimer's Disease Center, which has been the subject of a 15-year efficacy trial. The outcome of the study shows clearly that counseling and support can help families keep Alzheimer's disease patients at home and that competent emotional support and referral resources can reduce the negative impact of caregiving on the caregivers.

These developments are fully reflected in the revised text.Continuing to offer a clear exposition of the theory and practice of the approach, Person-Centred Counselling in Action, Third Edition will be invaluable for those embarking on their first stages of training.
