Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy with Cancer Patients: A Morning with Dr. William Breitbart

The basic concepts of Meaning-Centered Psychotherapy (MCP), which is a manualized, evidence-based therapy for patients with advanced cancer, will be described in detail. A description of the intervention itself for both individual and group psychotherapy, as well as the content of each session, will be provided. The results of randomized and controlled trials will be presented, showing enhanced spiritual well-being, improved quality of life, and a decrease in depression, anxiety, and hopelessness.
