Tom Kitwood on Dementia
A Reader and Critical Commentary
edited by Clive Baldwin

Tom Kitwood on Dementia is key reading for students of social work or mental health nursing, with an interest in dementia care.

Key concepts and approaches from his work on person-centred care and well-being in dementia have gained international recognition and shaped much current thinking about practice development.

Tom Kitwood on Dementia brings together twenty original publications by Kitwood which span the entire period of his writing on dementia, and the different audiences for whom he wrote.

The introduction to this Reader summarises and problematises some of the key characteristics of Kitwood's writing. Each of the four themed sections begins with a commentary offering a balanced consideration of the strengths of Kitwood's work, but also of its limitations and oversights.

Contents

  1. Critique of the standard paradigm
  2. Ill-being, well-being and psychological need
  3. Personhood
  4. Organisational culture and its transformation
