Founded by Viktor E. Frankl, logotherapy is a form of psychotherapy that has proven itself over decades - through periods of war and prosperity - to work for the happiness and mitigate the unhappiness of all sorts of people. It has an impressive track record of success. It helps people to remain mentally supple in crisis situations and opens up new possibilities for discovering meaning. Its sophisticated methods all rely on the inalienable dignity of the unique person - who is trusted, in the interplay of freedom and responsibility, to outgrow his or her own problems and weaknesses. In this book, two experts in logotherapy report on their experiences. Through real case histories and expert discussion, readers discover for themselves just how beneficial this form of psychotherapy can be.
