    Best Introduction

    Logotherapy is widely practiced in Europe, Israel, South America and other parts of the world. It is not widely known in the United States. Yet its use in clinical practice has an excellent track record. It is complimentary to a variety of other counseling methods. Graber's book was intended for pastoral counselors and other clergy. Yet it is useful for psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, educators, and others. It is the best introduction to Logotherapy available to an American audience. Most Americans want to begin the study of any counseling approach with the techniques of that approach. Graber clearly and suscinctly outlines those techniques developed by Viktor Frankl and his successors in Logotherapy. Yet she also explains why Logotherapy cannot be reduced to a set of techniques and cookbook methods. It is the philosophy and attitudes that underlie Logotherapy that make it so useful for anyone in a helping profession. She also explains how Logotherapy speaks of the Spirit in a way that is helpful to very secular people without being offensive to highly religious people coming from many different religious traditions. Although I am not on the teaching faculty of the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy, I have taught Logotherapy to clergy, to physicians, and to addictions counselors. I wish I had known of this book before I tried to teach those classes. Dr. William M. Harris Chaplain, CoxHealth Springfield, Missouri Diplomate in Logotherapy

    A 'must-read' book for logotherapists.

    Dr. Graber's book on Viktor Frankl's logotherapy is essential reading for the novice or the master in logotherapy. She explains Dr. Frankl's concepts in terms that are easy to understand. Her scholarship and writing are both 'top-notch'. Dr. Graber's historical accounts of life in Vienna during Dr. Frankl's early years are particularly revealing. They add a depth to the story that I have not encountered in any of the other literature by or about Dr. Frankl. This is truly a 'must-buy' book for anyone interested in logotherapy.

    Excellent resource for health and social service providers.

    Dr. Ann Graber's book is an excellent resource for health and social service providers in a wide range of settings. The author's thorough approach to Dr. Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy is based on her years of experience as a pastoral counselor, scholar and teacher of Logotherapy. Ann Graber's book gives an historical and social context to Frankl's Meaning-Centered Logotherapy. She illustrates the principles and practical applications of finding meaning regardless of age or circumstances. The book is an exceptionally well written and documented resource for anyone interested in learning about the essence of Viktor Frankl's message for our times. I highly recommend it.

    The spirit of healing

    Dr. Graber not only presents a history of the birth of logotherapy, but demonstrates its symbiotic relationship with pastoral psychology and other interventions that acknowledge the role of the human spirit in healing. Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy gives a thorough overview of Franklian concepts and demonstrates their application in case scenarios. This enables the reader to realize the potential use of logotherapy in practice. In this time of global distress, the book serves as a wonderful introductory text of Frankl's meaning-centered approach to psychotherapy which is inclusive of the spiritual dimension - a balm for our troubled world.
