Logotherapy - Learn Online with Full Flexibility

We are venturing into uncharted territory, initiating a project that has not yet existed anywhere else in the world. Logotherapy Online will unfold all 5 semesters of the curriculum designed by Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Lukas, closely aligned with the original texts of Prof. Dr. Viktor E. Frankl on one hand, and intimately connected to the realities of modern life on the other. We offer you 104 hours of instruction across 223 videos, guiding you through 5 semesters of logotherapy. Perhaps you prefer to attentively watch one video every evening, or maybe it suits you better to dedicate a day to studying with multiple videos. With this, you have the opportunity to revisit any challenging concepts you may not have grasped initially. You can also pause the video at any time to jot down an important sentence.
Logotherapy presents you with a wealth of challenging, compassionate, and thought-provoking ideas. In our training program, you determine the pace and schedule that suits you best as you embark on the journey into the world of the Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy. We provide you with supplementary reading recommendations to deepen your understanding of each topic, allowing you to decide when and how to incorporate them into your personal schedule.
You will not be left alone! In addition to the instructional videos, you will have the opportunity to engage in monthly live webinars with our instructors, Dr. phil. Heidi Schönfeld and Mag. Dr. h.c. Alexander Vesely-Frankl. They will dedicate two hours on four Sundays each month to address your questions and facilitate discussions. These live webinars are open for addressing any uncertainties, exploring further ideas that arise, and considering the relevance of the content to personal inquiries or global issues. Interactive exchange is the focus, with the topics aligned with the content of the respective course sections.

"In the end, what a person really wants is not to be happy, but rather a reason to be happy."

Victor E. Frankl Founder of Logo-Theraphy

Viktor E. Frankl was undoubtedly a genius!

Viktor E. Frankl was undoubtedly a genius! He left us with a significant psychotherapeuticphilosophical framework through numerous books, some of which overlap or gather old and new texts under new perspectives. Initially, he primarily wrote for his colleagues among psychiatrists, publishing scientific essays as well as case studies. Additionally, more easily understandable radio lectures were transcribed. His poignant account of his years in concentration camps is worldrenowned.
Elisabeth Lukas, his disciple, systematized this opus magnum of Frankl and divided it into four major thematic areas.

The 4 themes systematically summarized

The 4 blocks are divided into 5 semesters, as the therapeutic aspect for curable and the medical ministry aspect for incurable illnesses and strokes of fate is extensive.
We will guide you through the entire work of Viktor E. Frankl.

Register Course of study

Anthropology

Semester 1 covers the topic of anthropology, the concept of humanity within logotherapy, which serves as the foundation for everything else.

Crisis Prevention

It deals with the question of how we can live in a way that the next crisis – and it comes for each of us – does not shake us to our core.

Therapeutic Concept

The third area is ultimately a cornerstone of logotherapy. The therapeutic concept is not just a specialized topic for therapists, but a fundamental understanding of mental suffering, the dissemination of which one can only wish for.

Medical Ministry

It constitutes the conclusion and has its task when healing possibilities reach their limits, when only consolation remains possible. However, it is a medical ministry, not a religious one.

Look forward to a challenging, vibrant, and hands-on training. We accompany you on your journey to becoming deeply educated logotherapists, true connoisseurs of Frankl’s work.“

A webcam is mandatory for participation.

The number of logotherapy institutes around the world has increased significantly in recent years. It is therefore natural that the quality of the training offered varies. Unfortunately, there are also some institutions that pretend to teach logotherapy according to Viktor Frankl in order to promote their own theories, which have little or nothing in common with it.

The training in original logotherapy that we offer will enable you to achieve a level of competence that will place you among the best trained logotherapists in the world. This will not only benefit the quality of your own therapeutic work, you will also be able to exchange ideas with other logotherapists worldwide and participate in a wide variety of activities and congresses to contribute and deepen your knowledge.

Jeanette Onusseit

I literally soaked up the videos. Viktor Frankl was a genius and is a great role model for me! Dr. Schönfeld explained it well and supported it with very instructive and clear cases from patients from her practice or from Elisabeth Lukas.

Dr. med. Klaus Baumann

Specialist in child and adolescent psychiatry and psychotherapy - Potsdam

In this online course, Dr. Heidi Schönfeld, in collaboration with Mr. Alexander Vesely-Frankl, to convey the great ideas of Frankl's logotherapy in a lively and true to the original way using Elisabeth Lukas's well-thought-out curriculum.
I wish this extraordinary project much success!

U. Schweinfurth

In my opinion, the semester is well structured with 40 chapters. Since I had my own recordings, I could see how little the online format differs from the face-to-face event. Theoretical explanations are also illustrated here with examples, and personal encounters and impressions are reflected, making what is presented seem lively. The only thing that is no longer necessary is to ask personal questions for understanding. However, this is compensated by the possibility of interrupting passages and listening to what happened before again. Being able to integrate the “lecture time” into my everyday life makes it easy for me to pursue further training or qualifications alongside my job and family.
