Dia-LOGO Therapy

Hardcover

Review
“This book is one of the very few that brings together the insights of postmodern theory, psychotherapy, and Judaism. It belongs in all graduate religious studies and Jewish studies libraries.”–Religious Studies Review

Book Description
Dia-Logo Therapy is a study of psychotherapy as a dual or dia-logic discourse between the two rational-cognitive and mystic-schizophrenic worlds. A comprehensive theory of psychotherapy must encompass treatment possibilities for rational and irrational behavior manifestations as they are apprehended in their specific cultural context. The Jewish PaRDeS system is a pluralistic reading method for balancing between the rational-cognitive and the irrational-mystic. Incorporated are ideas from theories of literary criticism, deconstruction,...


Man's Search for Meaning: An Introduction to Logotherapy

Book Review
Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl is among the most influential works of psychiatric literature since Freud. The book begins with a lengthy, austere, and deeply moving personal essay about Frankl's imprisonment in Auschwitz and other concentration camps for five years, and his struggle during this time to find reasons to live. The second part of the book, called "Logotherapy in a Nutshell," describes the psychotherapeutic method that Frankl pioneered as a result of his experiences in the concentration camps. Freud believed that sexual instincts and urges were the driving force of humanity's life; Frankl, by contrast, believes that man's deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. Frankl's logotherapy, therefore, is much more compatible with Western religions than Freudian psychotherapy. This is a...


Prisoners of Our Thoughts : Viktor Frankl's Principles at Work
Alex Pattakos, Stephen R. Covey

October 10, 2004
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
The late Viktor Frankl's hopeful Man's Search for Meaning emerged from his experience in a Nazi concentration camp. With Frankl's blessing, Pattakos, a cofounder of the Innovation Group consultancy and a former professor of public and business administration, applies Frankl's lessons to corporate America's workplaces. Logotherapy, Frankl's therapeutic approach, says we are free to respond to all aspects of our destiny; Pattakos argues that if we all have a will to meaning, then even if we work for unenlightened companies, we can still "connect meaningfully with others" within the workplace. Finding your sense of humor, giving to others and forgiving, and "de-reflecting" (or shifting your focus of attention) are all strategies for connection; one should consider "ten positive things" when losing a job or taking a...

Book Review
Viktor Frankl, author of the smash bestseller Man's Search for Meaning, offers a more straightforward alternative to traditional Freudian psychoanalysis: one's problems may be rooted in a failure to find a meaning in life beyond one's interior world. The basis for his interpretation, however, is not so straightforward. It lies in Frankl's existential analysis, plumbing for the reasons that people have repressed their consciences, their love, their creativity. By legitimizing a spiritual aspect of the human mind, Frankl has separated us definitively from the animal kingdom, but it is still up to each of us to rise to our human potential. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description
Frankl's timeless memoir and meditation on finding meaning in the midst of suffering With a new Foreword by Harold S. Kushner and a new Biographical Afterword by William J. Winslade 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.

Book Description
Dr. Ann Graber's magnificent work presented here in the Second Edition on Viktor Frankl is a serious attempt to demonstrate the effectiveness and viability of the use of existential analysis (logotherapy) by those in ministry. Dr. Graber has poignantly demonstrated that existential analysis can be both scientifically sound and theologically grounded. Unlike the other Viennese schools of depth psychology, Frankl centers his work in the spiritual vitality of the human soul wherein is located the origin and destiny of all emotional healing.

About the Author
Ann V. Graber grew up in Europe and was educated in Austria. As a young adult she immigrated to the United States and became a naturalized citizen. After rearing her family, she continued her higher education, culminating in...

From Booklist
Frankl, psychologist and author of Man's Search for Meaning (1959), recounts his life in Austria from his birth in 1905 to the end of World War II. Even as an adolescent, Frankl was drawn to the workings of the human mind. He devoted himself to the study of psychology while a very young man and was mentored by pioneer psychologist Alfred Adler. Frankl, though, eventually rejected key tenets of Adler's teachings, and the two split forever. On his own, Frankl developed logotherapy, a combination of psychology and philosophy, to help people search for values and meaning in a world often devoid of both. But then Frankl, a Jew, came up against Hitler's Anschluss of his homeland and, later, the concentration camps and their attendant horrors, putting Frankl's logotherapy to the supreme test. An enlightening...
