Resumen

ARAUJO, Lia; GOMEZ, Verónica; TEIXEIRA, Catarina  y  RIBEIRO, Óscar. Remotivation Therapy Program for institutionalized elders: pilot study. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2011, vol.serIII, n.5, pp.103-111. ISSN 0874-0283.  http://dx.doi.org/10.12707/RIII1159.

The development of Remotivation Therapy in gerontological interventions is recent but has shown a positive impact in patients experiencing mild dementia, with some functional and cognitive impairment, as well as in autonomous and independent elderly. Reported experiences indicate an improvement in interactions between individuals, which contributes to their social integration and increased self-esteem. This pilot study analyzes the benefits of a Remotivation Program for institutionalized elderly (ProTR) in terms of depressive symptoms, morale and participation. The participants were 14 seniors divided into two groups: an experimental group who benefited from ProTR sessions and a control group who experienced no intervention. Instruments used include the Philadelphia Geriatric Centre Morale Scale, the Geriatric Depression Scale and the Scale for the Evaluation of the Behaviour in Remotivation. The results suggest benefits in terms of depressive symptom reduction after the intervention, and an increase in morale at follow-up. The authors highlight the need for more research and evaluation of this intervention with other population groups.

Palabras clave : remotivation therapy; homes for the aged; affect; depression.
