This textbook on palliative social work is a companion volume to the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Medicine and the Oxford Textbook of Palliative Nursing. To that end, this chapter will accomplish the following:

Interventions in the setting of palliative care require a range of therapeutic models to respond to the individual lived experience of patients.

Social work practice is informed by a variety of theoretical constructs that assist practitioners in making sense of adjustment issues and meeting the complex needs of those facing life- threatening illness and the end of their life.

Meaning-based and schema therapy are two broad models used in the setting of palliative care, both suggesting ways to view and work with the process of adjustment.
