This Call for Papers is your invitation to consider submitting a program proposal for the Institute’s Twenty-Third World Congress. The Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy has been granted 501(c)(3) not-for-profit status by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS). As such we are not allowed to include any program presentation for any political emphases nor conflictual persuasions.
Frankl’s Logotherapy helps individuals to self-transcend by using the triumphant power of the human spirit in facing suffering, conflict, terror, tragedy, pain, loss, grief, and inner emptiness. Frankl’s vision for humanity includes HOPE, which fosters an attitude of optimism in the midst of tragedy and despair.
In preparing a program proposal, remember that Congress participants will come from a wide range of disciplines including psychiatry and other medical specialties, nursing and allied health sciences, psychology, psychotherapy, philosophy, education, anthropology, religion, pastoral counseling, counselor education, sociology, social work, criminal justice, and graduate students as well as the broader areas of life and work where Logotherapy could make a significant difference.
All presenters give permission to be recorded; and recordings will be accessible on the Institute’s website to Congress registrants for the following 12 months.
