The Chinese immigrant community faces multiple barriers to quality cancer care and cancer survivorship. The clinical effectiveness of meaning-centered psychotherapy (MCP) has not been studied in racial and ethnic minority populations for whom the concept of “meaning” may likely differ from that of Westernized White populations. This chapter describes a community needs study to inform the cultural adaptation of MCP for Chinese patients with advanced cancer in accordance with Bernal et al.’s ecological validity model and the cultural adaptation process model of Domenech-Rodriquez and Weiling. It also describes key strengths and suggested areas of focus in adapting MCP for Chinese immigrant patients.
