Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Here are the recommendations for continuing education from the International Association of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, Vienna, which we endorse:

The fulfilment of psychotherapeutic or counselling duties and responsibilities calls for continued self-critical assessment of one's own personal and professional qualifications and competence, as well as continued efforts for their further development and the observation of one's own limits. Given this reality, the responsibility arises to stay informed of current best professional practices via the appropriate ongoing education training, and to critically grapple with and self-appropriate this ongoing training into the course of one's psychotherapeutic or counselling activities. Particularly, with a view of the two years to renewal of accreditation for your practice, we recommend that accredited therapists or counsellors take part in advanced training, congresses, and conferences on psychotherapy and counselling.

Specifically, we recommend taking part not only in advanced training programs in Logotherapy, but also in related schools of psychotherapy in order to remain informed of the latest themes and trends in the helping and counselling professions. This recommendation is expressly not a binding commitment for therapists or counsellors accredited through the Viktor Frankl Institute; it should simply serve to safeguard and enhance the quality of Logotherapeutic psychotherapy and counselling
