The Last Year of Life: Psychoanalysis Meets Early Palliative Care

Gary Rodin, M.D.
presented by The Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis

TICP Office & Community Clinic, 427 Vaughan Road, Toronto, ON, M6C 2P1

Gary Rodin, M.D.
The Last Year of Life: Psychoanalysis Meets Early Palliative Care



The problem of mortality is a central human preoccupation and fundamental concern of most the world’s great philosophies and religions. However, the last stage of life has received much less attention in the psychoanalytic literature and teaching curricula than any other stage of life and psychoanalytic concepts have had relatively little influence on the psychological care of individuals facing impending mortality. Drawing upon attachment and relational therapy and mentalization-based therapy and working in a comprehensive cancer centre, we have developed a psychotherapeutic approach for individuals and couples living with advanced cancer. The theoretical foundations, clinical applications and evidence for this approach locally and internationally will discussed in this presentation.


Gary Rodin is the University of Toronto/University Health Network Chair in Psychosocial Oncology and Palliative Care and Head of the Department of Supportive Care at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto, Canada. Dr. Rodin is also a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto and Executive Member of the Toronto Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis. He leads a clinical and research program on the psychosocial dimensions of advanced and terminal disease and on the development psychotherapeutic interventions to improve the quality of life and the quality of dying and death in this population. He has published widely in these areas and is recognized internationally for his efforts to improve the effectiveness and availability of psychosocial and palliative interventions for patients and families facing life-threatening and advanced disease.
