Medvene, Louis J. & Carissa K., Coleman.2012.Applying interdependence theory to geriatric nursing assistant/resident relationships. GERONTOLOGIST,51, 631-631; 2 NOV 2011
The study was concerned with the applicability of interdependence theory for understanding the quality of certified nursing assistant (CNA)/resident relationships in long term care facilities. Interdependence theory, a social psychological theory, has been applied to a
variety of relationships. It provides an account of how trust, commitment, closeness and cognitive interdependence (feelings of “we” and
“family”) develop in relationships.
