About the event
Please join our discussion on Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl, commemorating Holocaust Memorial Day. The event will be presented by Dr Kate Loewenthal.
Man's Search for Meaning was written in 1946, chronicling Frankl's experiences as a prisoner in Nazi concentration camps during World War II. It also described his psychotherapeutic method, which involved identifying a purpose in life to feel positively about, and then immersively imagining that outcome.
Kate Loewenthal is a retired academic psychologist, still having difficulties giving up her academic work. She currently writes, lectures and practices psychotherapy. Her interest in Frankel goes back a long way and she is looking forward to talking about it. Kate is married to Dr Tali Loewenthal and they have a wonderful large family.
