By dealing primarily with the strengths of the client, and by following simple steps which can be performed by any trained health professional, social worker, relative or technician, remotivation therapy is very useful in group settings and with noncommunicative clients as a away of preparing them for more advanced therapies. This collection of 17 articles describes the therapy's basic goals and use over the past 50 years, models, therapist training, evidence-based remotivation, use of the therapy in de-institutionalization and rehabilitation and in correctional settings, considerations for mental hospitals and nursing care facilities, applications to treatment for Alzheimer's Disease and substance abuse, use in concert with recreation/activity therapy, and the building of a collaborative team.
