Show Summary Details


The implementation and dissemination of psychosocial interventions across different countries is a major challenge to clinicians worldwide. Cultural and societal considerations are required during these adaptations. These considerations include logistic, context-based, and thematic aspects. This chapter describes the process of adapting meaning-centered group psychotherapy (MCGP) to the Israeli context. The chapter discusses the general considerations in intervention adaptation and describes the application of these considerations to the Israeli culture. The description is accompanied by a discussion of the special characteristics of Israeli society that require attention while implementing the MCGP. The chapter also presents preliminary results of two MCGP pilot interventions conducted in Israel. In addition, the chapter presents a clinical example based on excerpts from two MCGP sessions.
