This article is about an end-of-life treatment, called Dignity Therapy, that was created by a man named Harvey Chochinov.
Dignity Therapy offers patients various ways to reflect on their lives, whether is through a "Patients Narrative, Re-writing a Life or an Urgency to Change"
Chochinov found that what people fowler uncomfortable with the idea that who they were would completely cease to exist after their death.... "If the idea of having something that will outlast even you matters for patients that are near the end of life, then we need to do something that will create something that will last beyond ... the patient," he says.
Each of these processes allow the patient to be remembered the way they want to be remembered.
