PIA Overview:
Psychosocial Understanding and Intervention

Chair: Mary Mittleman
Current evidence suggests that many aspects of dementia, including the effects of the illness on the day-to-day functioning, psychological well-being, physical health and relationships of the people with the illness and their family members are amenable to treatment with psychosocial interventions. Environmental factors can also affect functioning and quality of life. In addition, psychosocial, lifestyle and environmental factors impact on risk of developing dementia, and interventions in these areas can contribute to risk reduction. The members of this group are scientists conducting research to identify and understand the psychosocial aspects of dementia so as to provide optimal psychosocial interventions to maximize the well-being of those affected by dementia, and prevent or delay the onset of dementia for those at risk of developing the condition.
