Jeihoon bookstore in Tehran is to host two meetings on the meaning and worth of life.
Slated for August 7 and 21, the meetings are more like introductory sessions of logotherapy, a school of psychotherapy developed by Austrian neurologist and psychiatrist Viktor Frankl (1905-1997).
Iranian psychologist Qobad Haq-Mohammadi, specializing in life improvement counseling, will conduct the sessions, IBNA reported. He is the head of the managing board and CEO of Shayeganeh consulting psychology center in Tehran.
Each session takes 90 minutes during which Haq-Mohammadi refers to Frankl’s seminal book ‘Man’s Search for Meaning.’
Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. In ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’ he argues that suffering cannot be avoided, but people can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose.
The sessions start at 8 pm. the venue is the famous bookstore of Jeihoon Publication located at No. 1292, Enqelab Avenue, across the University of Tehran.
For participation enthusiasts can refer to evand.com, a local website on workshops and educational courses.
Logotherapy is considered the ‘Third Viennese School of Psychotherapy’ after neurologist Sigmund Freud’s method of psychoanalysis and physician and psychotherapist Alfred Adler’s individual psychology.
Frankl’s theory known as logotherapy, from the Greek word ‘logos’ (here ‘meaning’), holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure or power, as Freud and Adler maintained respectively. The main purpose, Frankl believed, is the discovery and pursuit of what one personally finds meaningful.
For Frankl, meaning came from three available sources: purposeful work, love, and courage in the face of difficulty.
