The Importance of Logotherapy In African Culture

  • RB Asagba

Abstract

From literature review, Logotherapy is less utilized in Nigeria. Despite of the brevity of the therapy, many Nigerian psychotherapists are yet to imbibe it in their practice. In demonstrating the effectiveness of Logotherapy in African culture, specifically Nigerian culture, the paper briefly examines the history of psychotherapy and highlights what logotherapy is about along with illustrations on how its holistic form of therapy is very useful in Nigerian culture.
In conclusion, some justifications for using logotherapy are provided in order to guide African psychotherapists in their decision making.
