Psychotherapy is an option that helps the individuals adjust better to the diagnosis, educates them on the implications of dementia, and also helps the caregivers understand how they can cope with the disorder. Psychotherapeutic approaches to treating dementia include cognitive behavioral therapy, problem-solving therapies, interpersonal therapy, or integrative therapeutic techniques.
