This 26-slide PowerPoint presentation was created and used to teach introduce students to Viktor Frankl’s Logotherapy in a University classroom. It has been designed with both the student (aesthetics) and teacher (flow of ideas, overall structure) in mind. This is a wonderful presentation for either a psychology or philosophy classroom, and is great for Meaning of Life discussions.
The lecture covers the following (as shown on second slide):
- Who was Viktor Frankl?
- Summary Statement
- Nuts & Bolts of Logotherapy
- Important Terms in Logotherapy
- Meaning of Sex in Logotherapy
- Aim of Therapy
Students can be assigned this abridged reading: Man’s Search for Meaning. Most of the material in this lecture focuses on the material from the beginning of Part 2 “Logotherapy in a Nutshell” (p. 101 of book; p. 54 of PDF) to the section titled “Meta-Clinical Problems” (p. 119 of book; p. 71 of PDF).
