text A A A

This handbook is developed for use in the basic remotivation therapy course taught by certified instructors of the National Remotivation Therapy Or- ganization and as a reference text and guide for remotivation therapists. Re- motivation, a simple, question-based group therapy, creates a group pro- cess that centers on concrete and nonthreatening topics. It was devel- oped in the 1950s to improve the so- cialization and self-esteem of re-gressed patients in state hospitals and schools for the mentally retarded. Re- motivation therapy is currently used mainly with regressed and depressed patients, especially geriatric popula- tions; they include patients with Alz- heimer's disease and others in day care centers or long-term-care facilities.
