Abstract:
The experience of guilt, shame and entrapment in carers of people with dementia and the relationship of these variables to psychological outcome. This thesis began by conducting a systematic review investigating the relationship between shame and depression. The review focused on evaluating the results of studies published that have used a quantitative approach to measure the relationship between these two concepts. Methodological limitations of these studies were presented as well as clinical implications and suggestions for future research. The research paper aimed to replicate the previous findings of Martin, Gilbert, McEwan and Irons (2006) by exploring the demographic, clinical, psychological variables together with new exploratory variables of guilt, shame and entrapment on depression, anxiety and stress. Fifty one people completed eight questionnaires each about themselves and the person with dementia. The findings did not replicate the original study although provided interesting findings, particularly in relation to entrapment and depression, anxiety and stress. The critical review discusses personal reflections on the research process and discusses directions for future research.
