Dr. Frankl was the founder of logotherapy—a form of psychotherapy.  His best-selling book Man's Search for Meaning is a first person account of his experiences in a concentration camp during WWII.  It was during this time that he perfected and applied his theories of psychotherapy. Indeed, his psychotherapy, based on applied existentialism, is credited with saving fellow inmates from suicide.
