CHAVES, Amanda Karla Diniz Liberato  e  AQUINO, Thiago Antonio Avellar de. Life Narratives of university students: an analysis of existential meaning through the process of autobiography. Rev. abordagem gestalt. [online]. 2021, vol.27, n.3, pp. 252-266. ISSN 1809-6867.

Autobiography is a resource used in clinical practice of Logotherapy and existential analysis with the purpose of clarifying meanings in life through histories of life. Therefore, based on Viktor Frankl's anthropological foundations, this research aims to apprehend existential values as well as to identify nuclei of meanings that are latent in the narratives of life of university students. For this purpose, this study had the participation of four undergraduate students, of both genders, with a 23 year old average age. The autobiographies were submitted to an individual analysis of similitude that counted with the help of software named Iramuteq, which allowed the identification of the so called nuclei of meanings. The results were discussed through the light of logotherapy and existential analysis.
