KROEFF, Paulo. Logotherapy: a vision of psychotherapy. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.1, pp. 68-74. ISSN 1809-6867.

This paper presents some central propositions of logotherapy, such as the meaning of life and its realization through values. Some comparisons are made of logotherapy with other systems, such as psychoanalysis, individual psychology and existentialism. It examines its evolution, from an initial claim to be an additive to psychotherapy, evolving to present itself as one of the schools of psychotherapy, and a specific therapy in the case of noogenic neurosis, and finally, also, as a supplement to other psychotherapies. It is discussed goals and ways of conducting logotherapy sessions.

Keywords : Logotherapy; Psychotherapy; Meaning of life; Values; Noogenic neurosis.
