Dignity Therapy Training Workshop

CancerCare Manitoba is proud to present an intensive two-and-a-half-day Dignity Therapy training workshop led by Dr. Harvey Max Chochinov.

May 9 - 11, 2018
Inn at the Forks - 75 Forks Market Road

The ultimate goal of Dignity Therapy is to help bolster the dignity of dying patients and address their suffering. This therapeutic intervention invites individuals with life-limiting illnesses to reflect on matters of importance to them.

Using the Dignity Therapy protocol and following the respondent's cues, a trained therapist facilitates the expression of thoughts, feelings, and memories that are compiled in a narrative document for the patient to share with a friend or loved one. The benefits of Dignity Therapy have been published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology and the Journal of Palliative Medicine.

This workshop will consist of a blend of lectures, small-group discussion, observation of Dignity Therapy in action, and hands-on opportunities for therapists to learn how to carry out this novel intervention.

Online registration is now available at the following link:

Please note that registration is limited to 70 participants.
