  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

  1. To assess the effects of DMT on behavioural, social, cognitive and emotional problems of people with dementia in comparison to no treatment (waiting list), standard care or any other treatment.
  2. To compare different forms of DMT (e.g. Laban-based DMT, Chacian DMT or Authentic Movement).
