This chapter provides instructions for conducting the third session of individual meaning-centered psychotherapy. The reader is instructed to introduce and explore the topic of “Historical Sources of Meaning” and the guiding theme “Life as a Legacy.” The patient should be provided with the chance to describe his or her personal understanding of “legacy” on his or her own terms before the leaders explore the concept of “legacy” in historical context (e.g., past, present, future legacy). By the end of Session 3, the patient will have a solid understanding of the core theme “life as a living legacy” through three temporal legacy modes: the legacy that’s been given from the past, the legacy that one lives in the present, and the legacy one will give in the future.
