Research Projects
Adapting Cognitive Stimulation Therapy for Dementia to the Egyptian Culture.

The project involves translation to Arabic language and cultural adaptation of the CST manual 1 and 2 (Making a Difference: An Evidence-based Group Programme to Offer Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) to People with Dementia) and (Making a Difference 2: Volume Two: An Evidence-based Group Programme to Offer Maintenance Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) to People with Dementia). This will be followed by performing a feasibility study to test the applicability and cultural sensitivity of the adapted manuals to a sample of Egyptian patients suffering from dementia. The study will be conducted in Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine Hospital in Cairo University, Egypt.
