This workbook offers clinicians from all theoretical backgrounds and occupations a vast amount of tools, techniques and exercises through her Conceptual Pictographs to attend to the existential issues we all face; and to ignite and promote meaning in a compassionate and empathic way in the therapy room, even in the most difficult cases, tragic situations and life-limiting conditions.
