Individuals with serious and incurable illnesses often require care that goes beyond the body.

Even those at the beginning ofthe end of life can take an active role in their treatment. This skill-based program emphasizes flexibility and should be tailored to individual clients. The first module introduces stress management techniques, including cognitive restructuring, relaxation, and problem-focused and emotion-focused coping. The second module targets mood management, withsessions on depression, anxiety, and anger. Social support is addressed in the third module where clients learn communication and conflict resolution skills. Special attention is paid to supporting caregivers and working with medical providers.

An adaptation chapter details how to run the program as a group and discusses other possible formats.

The corresponding workbook helps clients personalize the content of sessions and practice new skills.
