Non-pharmacological Therapies in Dementia $245.00
   
Journal Editors: Elisabetta Farina, MD, Editor-in-Chief

Journal Description:
Non-pharmacological Therapies in Dementia is a peer-reviewed journal for clinicians and researchers with an interest in non-pharmacological treatments proposed in dementia care and Mild Cognitive Impairment, including medical doctors (neurologists, geriatricians, physiatrists, psychiatrists), psychologists, neuropsychologists, occupational, speech, and physical therapists, nurses, social assistants, music therapists and experts in bioengineering and architecture who work in the dementia field, students in all of the helping professions, and clinical scientists working on neural plasticity. Open-Access online option for published articles is available.

The aim of the journal, which is published twice per year, is to accumulate scientific evidence about the efficacy of all kinds of non-pharmacological treatment proposed in dementia care; to revise existing evidence about the efficacy of the different techniques; to give suggestions (useful in clinical practice) to psychologists and therapists about the selection of the right technique according to the patient’s characteristics; to propose protocols of treatment, supported by scientific evidence and clinical experience; to stimulate a debate about non-pharmacological treatments in dementia among different professionals involved in dementia care; to collect data about the point of view of people living with dementia treated with a non-pharmacological approach .

The journal publishes original research articles, brief communications, letters to the Editor, literature reviews, expert commentaries, points of view of different professionals about controversial issues, descriptions of original clinical cases treated with non-pharmacological therapies, presentations of practical protocols of treatment or environmental adaptations currently used in highly specialized and high-quality centers that are supported by efficacy evidence, and presentations of well-designed trial protocols.

Other domains of interest are ethics and psychological and social issues in Mild Cognitive Impairment and dementia, e.g. all topics related to the respect of human values and to the fact of making valuable remaining resources of people living with these conditions and reducing their social stigma.

The journal invites clinicians and clinical scientists to contribute articles on topics including, but not limited to, the following areas:

● Cognitive oriented interventions
● Memory training and memory rehabilitation
● Speech therapy
● Occupational and recreational therapy
● Music therapy
● Psychomotor therapy
● Physical therapy
