Written by an international assembly of leading exponents of existential psychotherapy and related disciplines, this book includes thirty chapters on current trends and topics in Logotherapy and Existential Analysis. It provides readers with an up-to-date and well-integrated text that will enhance the knowledge and skills of everyone who in one way or another applies meaning-oriented and person-centered psychotherapy and counseling in his or her professional and/or personal life. In keeping with Logotherapy’s tradition of interdisciplinarity, the research gathered in this volume comes from a variety of sources and disciplines, including medicine, psychiatry, psychology (both clinical and theoretical), counseling, nursing, and philosophy.

Part I focuses on the theoretical foundations of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis as well as tributes to Professor Viktor Frankl. Reflections on Logotherapy and its broad application to everyday life and psychotherapy are also included in this part. Part II addresses Logotherapy in the context of current trends in the empirical, theoretical, and clinical behavioral sciences. Part III presents new approaches and applications of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, whereas Part IV introduces new research and empirical findings on the application of Logotherapy, the constructs of hope and meaning, and meaning in suffering.

As Jay I. Levinson, Ph.D., former Special Assistant to Viktor E. Frankl, and co-editor of this essential new volume, says in his foreword, “It was always Frankl’s wish … that he not be seen as the great ‘guru,’ meaning the only and/or ultimate authority on existential psychiatry. Rather, Frankl encouraged others to build on his theories, expand the literature and further serve humankind.” Thus, the 30 chapters contained here allow readers access not only to the contributions of Viktor Frankl but to the grand extrapolations that have been made by those who have learned from him. Like a force of nature, the Logotherapy paradigm shows us the vision in its roots and the core in its branches.

The specific and the general dovetail to clarify the philosophical basis and clinical applications of Frankl’s Logotherapy, as well as possible future directions.
