Dignity Therapy

Harvey Max Chochinov

Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines important issues that need to be addressed in anticipation of beginning Dignity Therapy. For instances, what are the entry criteria for Dignity Therapy and as important, who should not be considered for this novel therapeutic approach? This chapter provides language that therapists might consider to introduce Dignity Therapy to patients and their families. Patients invariably have many questions, and this chapter offers detailed responses to the most frequently asked questions, such as ‘why does Dignity Therapy works?’; ‘what kinds of questions will be asked?’; ‘what if they can’t think of anything further to say?’ For the first time in the text, the reader is introduced to the Dignity Therapy Question Framework. This framework, while entirely flexible to the patient’s preferences, is critical in carrying out Dignity Therapy.

Keywords:   introducing dignity therapy, frequently asked questions, dignity therapy question framework
