Where reported, adverse events were generally minor. Adequately powered RCTs of high methodological quality with longer-term follow-up are required to as...

CONCLUSIONS: Caregivers had experienced both negative and positive psychological outcomes. There were differences in the effects of insecure attachment on psychological experiences. Social support plays an important role in the relationships among insecure attachment, depression, and self-esteem. Insecure attachment styles and social support should be considered in tailored interventions for family caregivers to reduce their depression and enhance their self-esteem.
