Innovative Applications of Logotherapy for Military-Related PTSD

Aaron Smith


As the need for innovative treatments for military-related PTSD increases, it is imperative to begin re-examining some current empirically proven methods for ways they can be used to administer competent and ethical care. One proven intervention that is widely known yet rarely practiced is Logotherapy (Frankl, 2006).
