Abstract

The following study represents a review of the literature regarding the dual diagnosis of dementia and depression and a description of an attempt to apply cognitive therapy techniques with eight participants (age range: 57 - 83), all of whom had received a diagnosis of dementia and depression. The results appeared to indicate that cognitive therapy for depression, with people experiencing dementia, may be a feasible proposition. Common themes arising in therapy are discussed.
