This workshop will present a brief overview of Logotherapy, including the most important elements of Viktor Frankl's philosophy and clinical approach to wellness. In the first hour, we will review Frankl's personal history and the impact his experiences had on the formation of his approach to health and wellness, the three tenets of Logotherapy, Frankl's dimensional ontology, and, Frankl's approach to understanding and finding meaning in life (Meaning Triangle, the Demand Quality of Life, Existential Crisis and Noögenic Neurosis).

In the second hour we will review the "Tragic Triad" and explore supporting healthy outcomes using the Tools of Logotherapy (Socratic Dialogue, Meaning-Making, engaging Self-Transcendence and Change of Attitude). Participants will be given an opportunity to fill out their own "Meaning Triangle" in response to a difficult life situation.

This workshop will be held on Zoom.
