Key Points
"Multiple mediation analyses indicated that utilization of resources related to well-being and coping mediated the effects of the intervention on caregivers' psychological, physical and overall QoL & health at post-test and 6-month follow-up. (Re-)activating resources from both domains appears to be more effective than focusing on just one domain." Töpfer 2021
