Voices From Within: A Study of ECT and Patient Perceptions


Abstract:

This study examines ECT (electroconvulsive therapy) patients' own perceptions concerning their treatment and after effects. Research concerning memory loss and cognitive problems as a result of ECT has focused on researchers' ideas about what is important in assessing memory loss and cognitive damage. This study is an attempt to give ECT patients and survivors a voice of their own, from the perspective of those who have experienced the treatment.
