Ex-President of the International Society for Existential Analysis and Logotherapy (GLE International), an author of several books and a large number of scientific articles related to the theory and practice of Existential Analysis, Dr Laengle will attend three extensive psychology-related meaningful events during his stay.
The first event in England featuring Dr Alfried Laengle, will be an Open Day & Workshop to be held at Birkbeck, University of London, 18:00 - 21:00 hrs, 18 September.

This event is tailor-made for professionals interested in studying the practical implementation of Existential Analysis, psychology students, psychologists, physicians, nurses, social workers, counselors, coaches, and other related fields.

Prof Emmy van Deurzen is a philosopher, counseling psychologist and existential psychotherapist, the principal of the New School of Psychotherapy and Counseling at the Existential Academy in London. The primary attraction of this event will be a conversation with Emmy van Deurzen and Dr Laengle about modern approaches in existential therapy and how it can help individuals find personal meaning in the current political crisis. They will also be giving their vision and psychological understanding of the current political crisis and the existential meaning of Brexit.
"The effects of a political crisis like Brexit can negatively impact people's psychological well-being causing stress, anxiety and depression, making them question their values and the complexity of life." said Dr. Alfried Laengle, founder of Existential Analysis and the Existential Academy.
"Brexit is essentially a type of freedom and as Existential Analysis is a form of psychotherapy uniquely centred around freedom, it can help the individual to understand and to come to terms with the current political situation," added Dr. Laengle.
