#58: Emerging from the Inner Storm – Presentation by Paul McQuillan, Ph.D., Psy.D.

On behalf of LogoTalk Radio, I want to extend my personal thanks to Storm, the pseudonym of the woman whose story you are about to hear, for giving LogoTalk Radio permission to use the following material.  I also want to thank Dr. Paul McQuillan for making this material available.

In the podcast that follows, you will hear Dr. McQuillan’s presentation given to the Nineteenth World Congress on Viktor Frankl’s Logotherapy on June 22, 2013 in Dallas, Texas. Dr. McQuillan presents the story of Storm, a woman who has emerged from the trauma of domestic violence with the help of logotherapy. The story is told with Storm’s own voice, through slides and recordings. The slide deck with the attendant audio can be viewed at
