- Do I need any special qualifications to study logotherapy?
There are no special qualifications required
- What certification will I receive?
Upon successful completion of the Advanced training, you will receive a certificate from the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy in Texas in the United States.
The advanced training consists of two tracks, clinical and educational, with two levels to each track.
The Associate certificate allows you to be a counselor of logotherapy, and specifies either the clinical or educational track.
The Diplomate certificate allows you to call yourself a ‘Logotherapy clinician’ or ‘Logotherapist’ in the clinical track and a ‘Logotherapy Educator’ in the educational track.
The VFI in Israel will give you a certificate for the first two training levels.
- What will I be able to do after getting this certification? Will this certificate allow me find work in the field?
A clinical workplace requires clinical qualifications. This is not a university degree, and there is no ‘licensing’ body. Psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals see logotherapy as the ‘missing piece’ that completes their education. Those who do not have clinical training apply logotherapy in a wide variety of fields.
- Can I do the course online?
The course requires coming to online meetings. It is not a distance learning course.
- What time of day are classes held? How are classes structured? How long does it take to finish?
Classes are at 15:00 Israel time.
The Introductory course, for personal enrichment, spans three months, with two hour meetings every other week.
The Intermediate course, incorporating tools and techniques, is also three months duration, with two hour meetings every other week.
The Advanced course, providing case supervision, is five months long, with three hour meetings every other week.
The Diplomate, which is a supervised independent study, requires a year of research and supervision, with occasional group meetings for support. The phone is (almost) always open for ongoing assistance.
