The Viktor Frankl Institute of Ireland was founded in 2009. It takes its name from Professor Viktor Emil Frankl (1905-1997), M.D., Ph.D., the world-famous Austrian philosopher, psychiatrist, neurologist, Holocaust survivor, founder of logotherapy and existential analysis, and author of the internationally acclaimed Man’s Search for Meaning, which was voted one of the ten most influential books ever written.

The Institute retains close ties with Vienna, with its international Diploma in Logotherapy and Existential Analysis being accredited by the International Association of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, at the Viktor Frankl Institute of Vienna, Austria.

We offer the only English-speaking training in classical logotherapy and existential analysis in Europe. As of January 2018 this Diploma is now being offered in a complete distance-learning format.
