Logotherapy Techniques: Dereflection

Posted on September 11, 2017 at 11:10 AM

Dereflection is 

'a technique of logotherapeutic psychology that is directed to taking a person's mind off a certain goal through a positive redirection to another goal, with emphasis on assets and abilities rather than the problems at hand. Dereflection often results in accomplishment of the original goal'. Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 9th edition. © 2009, Elsevier.


Dereflection encourages self-transcendence and a shift away from a pre-occupation with self, or specific attutitudes, thoughts and behaviours. Or, as Dr. Alex Pattakos, in his Huffington Post article 'Living with Meaning: Shift Your Focus Of Attention' wrote: The principle of dereflection, Dr. Frankl would say, helps us to ignore those aspects of our life and work that should be ignored. It also helps to turn us away from being self-absorbed with our problems and directs us toward the true meanings that beg to be discovered by us. In effect, dereflection encourages us to perceive something new in a situation so that we may let go of our old perceptions and ways of doing'.
