Abstract:Background: Gerontology literature shows that preventive interventions based on life-review and narrative therapy are most effective in reducing depressive symptoms in the elderly population and contribute to a greater feeling of mastery and a greater sense of wellbeing. The aim of this study is to detect the meaning and significance of an integrated intervention from the perspective of the participants. Method: A bottom-up approach is used to analyze 19 interviews of former participants. The transcriptions of the interviews were studied and important text passages were selected. The text passages were conversed in a code schema with nine different categories. Results: The participants experienced the following elements of the integrated intervention as meaningful: stimulation, attention, integration, acceptance, insights and coping. The results of this study are largely consistent with the results of other studies in the gerontology research field. The only element not mentioned from the perspective of the participants is the ‘awareness of life goals’. Instead the participants add elements to the literature: creating distance, openness to share their life story and a shift of concentration to the quality of life in the present. Conclusion: The results indicate opportunities for improvement and support the integration of the therapeutic methods: life-review and narrative therapy, to prevent the downside risks of depressive and anxiety symptoms in the elderly population.
