Today’s episode marks the 50th episode of LogoTalk Radio! This makes it something of our Golden Anniversary! It is, therefore, quite appropriate that we celebrate with a very special episode.
Today we present Part 3 of the Dr. Jerry Long Lecture Series which is nothing less than a demonstration of logotherapy itself. Dr. Long and a volunteer presented this demonstration at the Seventh World Congress on Viktor Frankl's Logotherapy held in Kansas City, MO in 1989.
For some historical context, at that time in history Dr. Bianca Hirsch was President of the Institute of Logotherapy. It was during her tenure that the Institute obtained official consent from Viktor Frankl to use his name as part of the Institute’s name. So it was at the Seventh World Congress on Logotherapy that the Institute officially became the Viktor Frankl Institute of Logotherapy.
Also during this time, Dr. Frankl credited James Crumbaugh, PhD, and Crumbaugh’s professional colleague, Rosemary Henrion, MSN, with bringing Frankl’s work into the scientific arena in the United States. Rosemary Henrion became Chairperson of the Institute’s Education and Credentialing Committee. Dr. Crumbaugh of Gulfport, Mississippi, James Yoder, PhD, of Kansas City, Kansas, and Mignon Eisenberg, PhD, of Chicago, Illinois, became Regional Directors for the Institute. Subsequently establishing residence in Haifa, Israel, Dr. Eisenberg was instrumental in establishing the Israeli Institute of Logotherapy.
With the kind permission of Mrs. Renee Feagans, we now present Dr. Jerry Long at the Seventh World Congress demonstrating logotherapy.
