Description

Summary

The goal of the proposed intervention, called LEAF (Life Enhancing Activities for Family Caregivers) is to reduce burden and increase well-being in Alzheimer's Disease caregivers through the practice of positive emotion skills. We will evaluate two methods of online delivery of LEAF: facilitated and self-guided and compare them to an emotion-reporting waitlist control condition. If effective, the LEAF program can be disseminated to Alzheimer caregivers nation wide.
