Item description for Empirical Research in Logotherapy and Meaning-Oriented Psychotherapy: An Annotated Bibliography by Alexander Batthyany & David Guttmann...
An ambitious project, this book offers an organized, comprehensive, and invaluable compilation of relevant research material regarding meaning in life -- the central axis of logotherapy. For those who are interested specifically in the work of Viktor Frankl, the book's place in the libraryshould be easily accessible because it will be pulled from the shelf again and again. For those who are not as familiar with his truly expansive perspective, the book will clarify Frankl's place in the field of contemporary psychotherapy and his enduring influence around the world. Batthyany and Guttmann have divided their presentation into three parts. In the first, readers will find studies on the scope, depth, and sources of meaning in everyday life, as well as across a variety of situations. The second part introduces findings related to logotherapy and psychopathology, and the entries in the third section consider the validity, reliability, and structure of logotherapeutic test instruments, or deal on some level withmeta-research on logotherapy. A relevant resource for the classroom or the private study, Empirical Research in Logotherapy and Meaning-Oriented Psychotherapy: An Annotated Bibliography celebrates the most profound aspects of psychotherapeutic exploration.

Covers some 600 Research Documents Apr 14, 2006
Logotherapy: a highly directive existential psychotherapy that emphasizes the importance of meaning in the patient's life especially as gained through spiritual value. The concept was developed if not originated by Viktor Frankl who worked in Vienna. This book appears on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
This book is in the form of an annotated bibliography. That is, the book is not written to present a consistent front to back view. Instead each of the major subject areas are really collections of summaries or abstracts of research documents conducted in that particular subject area.
The first part of this book is on the basic concepts of existential psychology and psychotherapy. It clearly illustrates the emphasis on the fundamental importance of discovering the meaning of ones life by looking at the decisions one makes day by day.
The second part of the book details specific techniques of existential psychotherapy. The final part of the book covers current trends in logotherapeutic development and research.
