Few would argue with the importance of helping patients sustain a sense of meaning, particularly in the last months of life as they confront death... Well, that's what these little treatment manuals are all about. A carefully developed and structured 8-week psychotherapeutic intervention, for individuals or groups, shown to be of benefit in randomized clinical trials... I was impressed by the potential value of these interventions. In the palliative care setting theycould be facilitated by experienced nurses, social workers, counsellors, and pastoral care workers as well as physicians.
