Logotherapy is an existential form of psychotherapy developed by Dr. Victor Frankl. A fundamental assumption of this approach is that everyone must live a fulfilling life and discover ‘meaning’ as a consequence of their experiences. Logotherapy assumes that the potential for meaning exists in the world for everyone and that the individual’s task is to relate to the world in such a manner as to discover meaning through their living. Logotherapy guides you in these terms, and will help you to focus on how to discover meaning in the various areas of your life, including your career, your relationships, and in suffering.
This approach is based on the premise that behavior can be altered by various reinforcement strategies that either target your ‘thoughts’ or your ‘behavior’. For example, a technique called ‘thought stopping’ is aimed at modifying ‘thoughts’ that may be troubling to you, such as persistent obsessions or ruminations about a problematic relationship. Desensitization is another common technique that can be effective at modifying a specific troublesome behavior, such as a phobia.
