Divided in to three parts, Part 1 draws on empirical research to demonstrate the effectiveness of meaning-oriented practice. Part 2 draws on the work of therapists across a number of approaches to explore the basic skills to working with meaning in life, including how a practitioner can assess whether their client needs to address issues of meaning in life; practitioner responsiveness to client issues and structuring a session. Part 3 goes on to provide a 7 step guide to applying the skills to clinical practice, with the support of clinical examples. Case studies from a range of professions run throughout the book and Parts 1 and 2 include 'implications for practice' boxes that connect theory to practice.
