Meaning is something every person struggles with in life. Understanding life experiences and developing a sense of purpose are often central concerns for clients, so therapists need to be prepared to handle these larger questions.

In this video program, Dr. Clara E. Hill explores the idea of meaning in life and discusses how to work with it as a focus in therapy.

In a series of highlights from a therapy session with an older male client struggling to define the purpose of his life, Dr. Hill shows how she encourages the client to explore possibilities, reframe negative thoughts and feelings with positive ones, and find insights by expanding on initial interpretations of the client's most impactful life milestones.

Viewers can see how Dr. Hill's work with the client helps him to effectively define his place in the world and therefore develop his own meaning in life.

Dr. Clara E. Hill's approach is an integration of client-centered, psychodynamic, and behavioral approaches, resulting in a three-stage model that includes exploration, insight, and action.
