BATA 43nd Annual  Symposium

Finding Meaning Through Art Therapy

Elizabeth Hlavek, DAT, ATR-BC, LCPAT

Logotherapy, which loosely translates to meaning therapy, is an extension of existential theory that emphasizes an individual’s search for meaning. Viktor Frankl first conceived of logotherapy as a physician in 1926 Vienna. His experiences in Nazi captivity only strengthened his resolve that meaning is paramount to existence. Remarkably, logotherapy is not often featured in art therapy literature, despite the commonality of finding meaning through artistic process. Frankl specifically asserted that meaning can be achieved through creativity, experience, and attitude (1973), all elements of the art therapy process. As art therapists guide their clients through the creative process to communicate their experiences and express themselves in an attempt to find meaning, they are unknowingly working within a logotherapeutic framework.

This keynote address aims to familiarize the art therapy community with logotherapy theory, and demonstrate how logotherapy can be recognized in and integrated into art therapy theory and practice.
