Dmitry Leontiev – Logotherapy Beyond Psychotherapy

LEONTIEV, DMITRY [Prof.; Ph. D.] [Russia]
Logotherapy is able to serve a highly relevant methodological basis for tis existential practice. My experience of singling out such a practice, that I call life enhancement, in tis pure form, and practicing it in group workshops during the last decade, provides a fresh view on new possibilities hidden in the logotherapeutic methodology. The focus of this work is making sense of one’s own experience, and the basic method is Socratic dialogue making a person become aware of the inconsistencies and dead ends in his/her own constructions of reality. Many long-term problems just dissolve in course of this work without special elaboration.
