Guided Integrative Autobiography is a writing course, involving an exploration of the diverse values, beliefs, and virtues that shape our lives. The process entails learning or revisiting psychosocial development theory, existentialism, and reminiscence, and life review strategies. The learning objectives for this course are to be able to differentiate between adaptive and maladaptive reminiscence and life review and to learn how to utilize life reviews as a way to pass on wisdom to future generations, build upon coping and problem-solving skills, and achieve a sense of life meaning, life purpose, and the integration of mind, body, and spirit.
