A Brief Bio
Alfried LÄNGLE, M.D., Ph.D., Dr. h.c.mult., is a professor and honorary professor born in Austria where he still lives. He studied medicine and psychology at the Universities of Innsbruck, Rome, Toulouse and Vienna. After years of hospital work in general medicine and psychiatry and in an outpatient department of social psychiatry he started a private practice in psychotherapy, general medicine and clinical psychology in Vienna (since 1982). During his career, he collaborated closely with Viktor Frankl (1983-1991). He assisted Frankls lectures at the university for years and worked together with him in many relevant fields of Logotherapy. Alfried is the founder and president (1983-2017) of the International Society for Logotherapy and Existential Analysis, whose honorary president was Viktor Frankl until 1990. By this date, Frankl resigned from his honorary presidency because of Längle’s new developments in the field of existential analysis (methods, implication of existential self-experience in the training seminars, rejecting the exclusive use of the meaning paradigm in psychotherapy and enlarging its theoretical basis, implementation of biographical work).
