PLO 512 Viktor Frankl’s Logotherapy and Twelve Step Programs of Recovery
Faculty: Dr. Ann-Marie Neale (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
The purpose of this course is to show the similarities and differences in the philosophies inherent in Logotherapy and the 12 Steps Programs of recovery from alcohol or other addictions. Students who enroll would benefit from having had some background in Franklian Psychology either through our Pastoral Logotherapy Program or other e-tutorials offered by GTF faculty or through their own study and readings. Knowledge of 12 Step programs would be an asset but is not a requirement. Students will not only read and study these two programs; they will also read a two act play which is a fictionalized account of a meeting in the Afterlife between the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous and Dr. Viktor Frankl.
