Information on the elective Existential Analysis

The course with its methodological focus is conducted by the following cooperation partner:

Austrian Society for Logotherapy and Existential Analysis (GLE-Ö)

Existential analysis was founded by the Viennese psychiatrist and neurologist Viktor E. Frankl and further developed above all by DDr. Alfried Längle. It is a phenomenological-personal psychotherapy with the aim to help the person

  • to a (mentally and emotionally) free experience
  • to authentic statements and
  • to deal with themselves and their world in a self-responsible way.

Theoretical contents, personal attitudes and individual competences are interlinked and taught through connection to personal experience in a continuous group setting.
