"The story of becoming sober signifies a great deal more than simply not 'picking up' or 'using'. This is a story not only of recovery, but also of what it means to live in sobriety." Congressman Patrick J. Kennedy 1st District, Rhode Island "This book, written by a recovering addict who became a successful therapist, is a perfect road map for addicts, codependents, and therapists. Among the milestones are sobriety, emotional maturity, and personal responsibility." Joseph A. Pursch, M.D. Psychiatrist and Member of the President's Commission on Alcoholism and Drug Addiction "A provocative and enlightening book that will inspire and touch the reader deeply. Highly recommended!" Congressman Jim Ramstad 3rd District, Minnesota Co-chair, Addiction Treatment and Recovery Caucus "This is a highly readable book that will be inspirational to those struggling with alcohol or drug problems and enlightening for those unfamiliar with the recovery process." George Kolodner, M.D. Medical Director, Kolmac Clinic Clinical Professor, Georgetown University School of Medicine

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful. At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

This landmark volume introduces the new series of proceedings from the Viktor Frankl Institute, dedicated to preserving the past, disseminating the present, and anticipating the future of Franklian existential psychology and psychotherapy, i.e. logotherapy and existentialanalysis . Wide-ranging contents keep readers abreast of current ideas, findings, and developments in the field while also presenting rarely-seen selections from Frankl’s work. Established contributors report on new applications of existential therapies in specific (OCD, cancer, end-of-life issues) and universal (the search for meaning) contexts as well as intriguing possibilities for opening up dialogue with other schools of psychology. And this initial offering establishes the tenor of the series by presenting varied materials across the field, including: Archival and unpublished articles and lectures by Frankl. Peer-reviewed studies on logotherapy process, measures, and research. New case studies using logotherapy and existential analysis in diverse settings. Papers advocating cross-disciplinary collaboration. Philosophical applications of existential psychology. Critical reviews of logotherapy-related books. Volume 1 of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis will attract a wide audience, including psychologists (clinical, social, personality, positive), psychotherapists of different schools, psychiatrists in private practice, and researchers in these fields. Practitioners in counseling, pastoral psychology, coaching, and medical care will also welcome this new source of ideas and inspiration.

Viktor Frankl is known to millions as the author of Man's Search for Meaning, his harrowing Holocaust memoir. In this book, he goes more deeply into the ways of thinking that enabled him to survive imprisonment in a concentration camp and to find meaning in life in spite of all the odds. Here, he expands upon his groundbreaking ideas and searches for answers about life, death, faith and suffering. Believing that there is much more to our existence than meets the eye, he says: 'No one will be able to make us believe that man is a sublimated animal once we can show that within him there is a repressed angel.' In Man's Search for Ultimate Meaning, Frankl explores our sometimes unconscious desire for inspiration or revelation. He explains how we can create meaning for ourselves and, ultimately, he reveals how life has more to offer us than we could ever imagine.

Born in 1905 in the center of the crumbling Austro-Hungarian Empire, Viktor Frankl was a witness to the great political, philosophical, and scientific upheavals of the twentieth century. In these stirring recollections, Frankl describes how as a young doctor of neurology in prewar Vienna his disagreements with Freud and Adler led to the development of "the third Viennese School of Psychotherapy," known as logotherapy; recounts his harrowing trials in four concentration camps during the War; and reflects on the celebrity brought by the publication of Man's Search for Meaning in 1945.

This book presents the core principles of Viktor E. Frankl's Logotherapy, and outlines how Logotherapy can be used in conjunction with other forms of interventions. It illustrates that, beyond a philosophy, Logotherapy is also a theory of personality, and a form of therapy. The book aims to illustrate the inductive and deductive interplay between theory and practice. Volume I is devoted entirely to Logotheory. Volume II contains the chapters which portray the practical applications of Logotherapy. Each chapter ends with Points to Ponder, which aim to bridge the chapters, and to highlight connections between theory and practice. The Appendix is written in the form of a Study Guide, expanding on Logotherapy's applications in specific practice areas in line with current developments in mental health care. Corresponding to each chapter, the References section provides an extensive list of relevant sources, and related, up to date bibliography. The writing of this book follows the ground-structure of the Doctoral Dissertation entitled "The Applications of Viktor E. Frankl's Logotherapy in Counselling Psychology," (1999) by Maria (Ungar) Marshall, at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada, which contains a comprehensive overview of the fundamental elements of the philosophy and practice of Logotherapy, based on an extensive review of international literature. Edward Marshall co-authored the present book, adding the chapters corresponding to the Appendix, reflecting developments in the practice, study and research in Logotherapy, since the submission of the original Dissertation, to the present. This up-to-date, and comprehensive review allows the reader to find situations in everyday life and in professional activities, where Logotherapy can be usefully applied.
