Objectives: An increasingly important concern for clinicians who care for patients at the end of life is their spiritual well‐being and sense of meaning and purpose in life. In response to the need for short‐term interventions to address spiritual well‐being, we developed Meaning Centered Group Psychotherapy (MCGP) to help patients with advanced cancer sustain or enhance a sense of meaning, peace and purpose in their lives, even as they approach the end of life.
