Terminal illness, death and dying are universal human experiences, but discussing them can be challenging. This video demonstrates the use of a therapeutic conversation guide, ‘STEPS Together’, providing a structure to employ narrative practices to support people to develop preferred narratives in the face of hardships related to terminal illness. The video features unique conversations with people with terminal illness, their caregivers and the bereaved. This work was completed with support from Singapore Cancer Society, Psychosocial Services Department.
