To promote high excellence standards in the professional conduct of logotherapy
training, practice, and research, and to provide access to reliable logotherapeutic
offers, the international community of logoterapist has defined quality control and
accreditation procedures. The application of these measures was entrusted to the
International Association of Logotherapy and Existential Analysis at the Viktor Frankl
The member institutions listed in the International Directory commit themselves
voluntarily to comply with the Ethical Guidelines of the American Psychological
Association (APA) and of the German Federation for Psychotherapy (DVP e.V.),
respectively. These set up standards of behavior for all activities related to
the exercise of therapeutic, advisory and scientific functions.
Graduates of accredited training programs may apply for individual membership and
accreditation with the International Association at the Viktor Frankl Institute.
After voluntary commitment to one of the abovementioned codes of conduct they are
listed in the International Logotherapists Directory and receive a certification
document. They are granted discounts at meetings of the VFI and some of its partner
institutions, such as the biennial World Congress of Logotherapy ("The Future of
Logotherapy"); also, transfers of patients requests are possible. For further
