Elder Rage

Jacqueline Marcell


This case describes the efforts of an adult daughter to identify the causes of anti-social personality changes in her father, her attempts to resolve his behavior on her own, and her persistence at getting medical attention until the causes of her father's personality changes were resolved. Her father's improved behavior was maintained by medication, by behavior modification techniques, and by keeping him occupied with mental stimulation, physical exercise, and social interaction.
