Existential Psychotherapy of Meaning:
a Handbook of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis
 
Experiential Psuchotherapy with Couples

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. Contributors include:

Empirical Research in Logotherapy and Meaning-Oriented Psychotherapy: An Annotated Bibliography
 

Alexander Batthyany & David Guttmann, In collaboration with PsycINFO, a department of the American Psychological Association (APA)


“Batthyany and Guttmann’s annotated bibliography is the only book of which I am aware that provides a comprehensive review of research on meaning in life, the concept at the very heart of logotherapy. …”
- Dr. Peter D. Ebersole, Department of Psychology, California State University, Fullerton

“Viktor Frankl’s impact extends far beyond logotherapy and psychotherapy. He deserves to be recognized as the father of positive psychology… Alexander Batthyany and David Guttmann’s annotated bibliography attests to Frankl’s widening influence, and provides invaluable resources for psychotherapists and researchers.”
 

- Dr. Paul T. P. Wong, Research Director and Professor, Trinity Western University, B.C., Canada President, International Network on Personal Meaning, and International Society for Existential Psychology and Psychotherapy An ambitious project, this book offers an organized, comprehensive, and invaluable compilation of relevant research material regarding meaning in life -- the central axis of logotherapy. For those who are interested specifically in the work of Viktor Frankl, the book’s place in the library should be easily accessible because it will be pulled from the shelf again and again. For those who are not as familiar with his truly expansive perspective, the book will clarify Frankl’s place in the field of contemporary psychotherapy and his enduring influence around the world.
 
Batthyany and Guttmann have divided their presentation into three parts. In the first, readers will find studies on the scope, depth, and sources of meaning in everyday life, as well as across a variety of situations. The second part introduces findings related to logotherapy and psychopathology, and the entries in the third section consider the validity, reliability, and structure of logotherapeutic test instruments, or deal on some level with meta-research on logotherapy. A relevant resource for the classroom or the private study, Empirical Research in Logotherapy and Meaning-Oriented Psychotherapy: An Annotated Bibliography celebrates the most profound aspects of psychotherapeutic exploration.
