Abstract: In the Master Thesis of the first author of this paper we studied qualitatively the efficacy of a specific psychotherapeutic intervention intended to help terminal patients to ressignify the symbolic pain of death, represented by the psychological and spiritual modalities of pain. This specific psychotherapeutic technique included mental relaxation and visualization of mental images related to elements of Spirituality. We concluded that the patients under investigation got a better quality of life during the process of dying and a more serene and worthy death, when we assist them using the specific psychotherapeutic technique above mentioned. In this article we describe and discuss the way to operate the technique proposed (ressignification of the symbolic pain of death).
