The Advanced Course in Meaning Centred Therapy (Logotherapy) Studies (Advanced Course in Logotherapy for short) consists of four units. They can be studied fully online.
The first Unit is a prerequisite for all of the others and students are required to complete this Unit successfully before progressing to the other Units. Students would then usually follow the Units in sequence. Unit Four can only be done after the completion of the first three Units. Students are required to purchase the text for each unit in either hard copy or online before beginning each Unit.
The Advanced Course in Logotherapy is accredited by PACFA (the Psychotherapists and Counsellors Federation of Australia) as a Specialist Training. It is also recognised by the Viktor Frankl Institutes in Australia, Vienna and the USA. Important: Logotherapy is an additional qualification to your professional qualification. It is not a qualification for practice in a particular field.
