Understanding socially disruptive behaviour in dementia is never easy. Most explanations offer neither solace nor solutions for families and carers, and treatment is often characterised by policies of control and containment. This book, which is the result of the authors 15 years of clinical work with people who are challenging, dispute the traditional medical model of dementia.

  • Contrasts the medical interpretation that sees anti-social behaviour as mere symptoms of disease with a person-centred interpretation that resonates change and resolution.
  • Offers a radical and innovative interpretation of challenging behaviour consistent with the new culture of dementia care, focusing on needs to be met rather than problems to be managed.

Review:

I would recommend this book to all who come in contact with people with dementia. --British Journal of Neuroscience Nursing

A detailed, extremely practical book ... This book s value is in its thorough treatment of this often complex area of clinical work ... undoubtedly a valuable source of information. --RCSLT Bulletin

Comprehensive and easy to use text...this is a well presented, easy to read, comprehensive text; a must for any clinician working in the field. --International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry

Synopsis:

Understanding socially disruptive behaviour in dementia is never easy and treatment is often characterised by policies of control and containment. This book, which is the result of Graham Stokes' 15 years of clinical work with people who are challenging, disputes the traditional medical model of dementia and asserts that if we reach behind the barrier of cognitive devastation and decipher the cryptic messages, it can be shown that much behaviour is not meaningless but meaningful. It contrasts the medical interpretation that sees anti-social behaviour as mere symptoms of disease with a person-centred interpretation that resonates change and resolution and offers a radical and innovative interpretation of challenging behaviour consistent with the new culture of dementia care, focusing on needs to be met rather than problems to be managed.
