The aspirations of many people are destroyed with the onset of a life threatening illness. Anticipated life trajectories and perceptions that people have of themselves must be altered, as the prospect of growing old becomes unattainable. Such news may often leave people bewildered and yearning for a future that is different to the one they now face. They may harbour feelings of regret, helplessness and hopelessness.
This paper explores the possible benefits of the use of life review as a therapeutic intervention in younger people faced with the end of life due to their prognosis.
