Humour therapy in patients with late-life depression or Alzheimer's disease: a pilot study


Walter, M; Hänni, B; Haug, M; Amrhein, I; Krebs-Roubicek, E; Müller-Spahn, F; Savaskan, E (2007). Humour therapy in patients with late-life depression or Alzheimer's disease: a pilot study. International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 22(1):77-83.

Abstract

Although there was no significant effect of humour therapy comparing with standard therapy on quality of life, these findings suggest that humour therapy can provide an additional therapeutic tool. Further studies with higher frequently humour groups are required in order to investigate the impact of humour therapy in gerontopsychiatric treatment.
