This chapter assesses the benefits of the Spanish version of meaning-centered group psychotherapy (MCGP). A pilot study was conducted from 2013 to 2015, and a qualitative analysis of themes that emerged from the pilot groups of MCGP was performed to study the efficacy of this Spanish model of psychotherapy in patients with advanced cancer (stage IV). Each of the eight group sessions addresses a specific topic: introduction to the concept of meaning (1), cancer and meaning (2), history of the concept of meaning (3 and 4), sources of meaning (5–7), and closing (8). Utilizing outcome measures validated for this sample, primarily the changes in emotional and spiritual well-being were evaluated. A practical manual of the Spanish version of MCGP and a protocol for training of future therapists have been developed to facilitate the delivery of this type of psychotherapeutic intervention in other cancer centers in Spain.
