The IV Pillars Model© at Reflection Therapy

Robert Montgomery, MA, MFT, Alan Swindall, M.Div., MA, MFT and Daniel C. Potts, MD, FAAN have collaborated to develop The IV Pillars Model©, an innovative new therapy for caregivers and persons with dementia/Alzheimer’s disease which provides ways to maintain personhood while preserving communication. The goal of the therapy is to provide a new perspective that informs the caregiver on how to effectively alter their interaction with a loved one suffering from a new Alzheimer’s/dementia diagnosis so that anxiety is lowered and loving, non-verbal interaction is sustained.
