He has translated three logotherapy books into Hebrew (along with Dr. Mignon Eisenberg), and has taught logotherapy in many parts of the world in formal courses, seminars, and workshops. He has been engaged in practice, teaching, research, and training in social work, gerontology, and logotherapy for the past three decades.
