MetadataShow full item record
The effects of Alzheimer’s disease are devastating not only to society, but in particularly to those affected by it through family, friends, and loved ones. There are only a limited number of studies pertaining to the client themselves and the implications for counselling that clientele. This thesis explores the possible benefits of group therapy for persons dealing with a diagnosis of ESAD through an inquiry with mental health professionals concerning the needs their clients and the possible benefits of group therapy. The author presents a thematic analysis of the possible benefits of group therapy for early stage Alzheimer’s disease (ESAD) clients, as perceived by the mental health professionals that facilitate the group sessions.
