I was at a conference today in Jerusalem that over 700 people attended. It was titled “To touch the pain.” The first speaker opened by saying that their goal is to create Jewish psychology – not in the sense of a new stream of psychology but in the sense of inserting faith into the psychology that already exists.
I will share with you what they said because even though it was not called a logotherapy conference it was hard to believe it wasn’t one. They were speaking the language of logotherapy, with one small omission: They didn’t breathe a word of the actual word “logotherapy” or “Viktor Frankl.”
What is the meaning of this? There is something in the air. There must be something we can do with this readiness. There must be a way to get logotherapy out there.
