Description

This course illustrates in depth a therapeutic technique called 'paradoxical intention' which comes from Prof Viktor Frankl's school of logotherapy and existential analysis. It is an evidence-based, scientific technique specifically designed for fears, phobias, anxiety, sexual dysfunctions, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, with a clinical success rate of over 78%. Dr Frankl was a world-famous Viennese psychiatrist and author of Man's Search for Meaning. The material presented here will be of interest to both mental health professionals and sufferers themselves, especially in the current context of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.
