Seventy-two adult child caregivers of persons living with Alzheimer's disease (AD) were randomized into two 8-week interventions: (1) connecting through caregiving (CTC: 37 participants) with intergenerational PT reappraisals and (2) basic skill building (BSB: 35 participants). The CTC intervention focused on PT reappraisals aiming to promote balance between self-care and caring of others: (1) connecting with self through enhancing self-awareness, (2) connecting with the care recipient through empathetic understanding, and (3) connecting with others who can help.
