Summary The thesis findings revealed midlife adults see meaning in life as comprising life philosophy / value, and purpose / reason, which guide and direct, and help to make sense of and cope with life. These aspects of life meaning are relevant but add unique contributions to a more global sense of meaning in life. The clinical portfolio explores the role of play in psychotherapy with children. Four case studies illustrate various ways in which play can be incorporated into therapeutic practice according to the child client's circumstances.
