Logotherapy • From Logos, meaning study, word, spirit, God, or meaning • The belief that everyone has an inborn need to seek the meaning of his/her existence • Frankl believed that without meaning, people would feel empty, and that would lead to depression • He also believed that everyone has the freedom of will, that we had the power to shape our own life

  10. Key terms Logotherapy(n): A form of psychology that tries to help the patient find the aim and meaning of his or her own life as a human being without accessing the medical aspect of mental health Other terms: meaning, motivation, will

  12. Impact of Humanistic Psychology on Society • Humanistic psychology has changed the way many psychotherapists work • The humanist approach is now the basis of many practices • Preferred both by clients and therapists • Clients are more likely to feel comfortable enough to explore their motivations/behaviour openly and honestly • Works with clients to help them come to their own understanding

  13. The Client Centered Model • Became basis of modern psychotherapists • With the CCM, psychotherapists follow predictable processes • Clients start out with superficial concerns then move to deeper attitudes and concerns • Clients improve their self concept and how they see themselves • This process unearths ways of thinking not available to the conscious mind
