The Viktor Frankl Institute was founded in Vienna in 1992 by an international circle of colleagues and friends. It is a scientific society with the goal of maintaining and fostering the life work of Viktor Frankl and to provide access to authentic information about Logotherapy and Existential Analysis.
The Institute offers the first state-accredited doctoral degree program for Logotherapy, in the framework of the Viktor Frankl Chair of Philosophy and Psychology at the International Academy of Philosophy (University of the Principality of Liechtenstein). Also, a Master program and psychotherapy training in logotherapy is offered in collaboration with the Department for Logotherapy, founded 2012, at the Graduate Institute of Psychoanalysis in Moscow. The Institute has exclusive access to VIKTOR FRANKL ARCHIVES and the world's largest collection of texts and research on Logotherapy and Existential Analysis. In collaboration with City of Vienna's VIKTOR FRANKL FUND the Institute grants scholarships and awards prizes for work in the field of meaning-oriented humanistic psychotherapy.
