I have been having trouble in therapy getting past the beginning stages of dealing with childhood abuse and even though my therapist has recommended "the courage to heal" workbook, I am not able to deal with it. I can open it, in the bookstore, and then i just zone out, grow very tired, and even turn my head away from the pages. my therapist has since recommended i read "man's search for meaning" by viktor frankl. I am half way through it and am not quite sure how this information applies to me or what i am to do with it.

I would try to read it, if it is the same one that I read, which I think it is, it may be hard to deal with at first...but it DID help me.

I have read Viktor Frankl's work in the past, cpt. He is well-regarded by the existentialist psychotherapist who is one of my heroes, Irvin Yalom (who also has written some books you might enjoy reading).

Frankl was so inspirational because he pondered what it was that allowed some people in concentration camps to survive while others died. He himself stayed alive largely because of his love for his wife, who he kept believing he would see again after the Nazi regime fell, which he also had faith would happen.

What has stood out for you so far of what you've read of Frankl??

I read Frankl´s book. I didn´t remember he expected to see his wife again. He didn´t, right?

Putting my 2 cents in, I think the book is inspirational in that the author never let anyone cause him trouble or take away his will of surviving. As they say, people can´t take away from you what you won´t allow. But he did have an ace up the sleeve, namely his profession. As a doctor, he was at times cut some slack b/c his services might be needed - I think.

CPT, I woonder if - like me and some others - you need to trust in your future so that you can look forward to something and move past childhood?

Nope, not the one I read, sorry. I think the one I read had more in the title.
