There are two major course offerings by the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy in Israel.
Within this course, there are 3 class levels. Each level is considered 1 semester which is approximately 4 months long. They are:
At the end of successful completion of all three levels, a student will receive an “Associate of Logotherapy” from the Institute in the U.S.
The tuition for all 3 semesters of the Associate Course is 9,000 NIS (or approximately $2,500 USD). After a non-refundable deposit of 500 nis ($125), a comfortable payment plan can be arranged. The deposit will be counted toward the tuition.
A student may opt to take only the first level as a stand-alone introductory class at partial tuition.
If they decide to continue and complete the certificate, they may do so and will pay the remainder due.
Is available to those students who have completed the Associate course.
There are two tracks within this course. The Clinical and The Educational.
The Clinical Track: requires that the student complete a 50 page research paper focusing on a theme that demonstrates the effectiveness of logotherapeutic interventions. For example, a theme might be, “The effectiveness of a final stand against fears through the use of paradoxical intention.” Cases should then focus on this theme and illustrate it. This will also require a background study of the theory. In the example brought here, the student would explain paradoxical intention as outlined by Frankl and other logotherapists, with a possible new contribution to this field. Ongoing enrichment meetings and a supervision group will be offered but participation is not a requirement. Students will receive individual supervision for their cases. The project should take approximately one year to complete.
The Educational and Administrative Diplomate:
This leaves the field of Logotherapy wide open outside the specific field of the clinical application of Logotherapy. Absolutely any theme can be researched that will throw greater light on the application of logotherapy in fields other than the clinical. But a practical component is of utmost importance. For example, in the field of education a possible theme could be: “How can a greater sense of authentic self-hood through a responsible life-task or sense of destiny be evoked among the youth in schools/universities/community centers?” Students should ideally be working on the ground with real subjects rather than offer a theoretical treatise. Ongoing enrichment meetings and a supervision group will be offered but participation is not a requirement. The project should take approximately one year to complete.
