23rd. World Congress is dedicated to Dr.Robert Barnes

In order to celebrate his life and pay tribute to his gifts to humanity, we will be dedicating the 2021 Congress to Dr. Robert Barnes, President of the VFIL who passed away during the development of this Congress.

This year because of COVID-19, we will for the first time hold the Congress by virtual means.

We believe that there has been much human suffering in the past year– illness and deaths, loss of jobs and financial security, loss of other human contact– and we are very concerned about burnout of clinicians and caregivers burdened with impossible demands.  We believe that more than ever our world needs to hear the words of wisdom from the teachings of Frankl.

We have eight featured speakers, and concurrent sessions from papers submitted by Logotherapists around the world, a Clinical Symposium, and an award ceremony from individuals who have recently earned the Diplomate credential through our Educational Program. You can view the full program from above
