Abstract

Disaster mental health, also known as clinical-disaster psychology, is an emerging area of interest among researchers and clinicians as it is important to understand the impact disaster events have on an individual’s mental health. Research within disaster events is necessary to allow researchers and clinicians to be better prepared for future disaster. Logotherapy is a meaning-based approach developed by Viktor Frankl that fits well with clinical-disaster psychology. Logotherapy assists disaster survivors in developing a sense of personal meaning as well as promoting posttraumatic growth. This chapter serves to provide a background in the areas of disaster mental health and logotherapy. Additionally, examples of personal experiences in research and practice in the field of clinical-disaster psychology, with the incorporation of logotherapeutic concepts, are shared.
