APA's Family Caregiver Briefcase

The American Psychological Associationís Family Caregiver Briefcase is now available. This is an online resource for those who work with family caregivers and can help professionals recognize, anticipate, and reduce the stresses on family caregivers across the life span. It provides guidance on how to assist caregivers through individual and organizational practice, research, teaching, and community service. Segments of the briefcase are also useful for family caregivers. To learn more about the Family Caregiver Briefcase, click here to view an information sheet, or visit the website at APA.
