Dignity Therapy

Harvey Max Chochinov

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides two examples of Dignity Therapy. In both instances, the reader is provided with the unedited, raw transcription, followed by what the final generativity looks like once the editing has been completed. Short of actually seeing Dignity Therapy conducted, this chapter provides readers with a sense of how the therapy unfolds, how the therapist uses various different facilitative techniques; the kinds of content Dignity Therapy contains and the way in which time is distributed—depending on the patient’s individual circumstances and preferences—amongst the questions within the dignity therapy question framework.

Keywords:   case examples, unedited generativity document, edited generativity document
