That is, it does not originate from the past, and is not brought on by repressed sexuality, childhood traumas, conflicts between different drives, or conflicts between the id, ego, and super-ego. Rather, noogenic neuroses originate in the present. They stem from the dimension of the spirit is, and are brought on by value collisions, conflicts of conscience, or by not finding and perceiving an ultimate meaning in life (Frankl, 1984b; p.

Dr. Lukas advised to explore both sides of options, and possibilities to arrive to that which one intuitively will judge to be more meaningful. As a general rule for this decision, she noted that meaningful can be only that decision, which is beneficial for all who are affected by it. In deciding value conflicts, or what direction to take, one‘s conscience will show the path, but it is important to give voice to one‘s inner dialogue, which can be done only in the context of a caring and trusting patient and therapist relationship.

And, already at this stage, the probes are aimed at clarifying meaning. The task of the initial interview is to understand the patients‘ world, and to relate it to the therapists‘ mindset. However, beyond thinking in terms of diagnostic categories, which can be found in Frankl‘s Theory of Neuroses (1993); the diagnostic categories of the International Diagnostic Code for Classification of Mental and Behavioural Disorders (ICD-10; 1992) and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental Disorders (DSM IV, 1994), even in this initial stage, a rapport building takes place, which helps the therapist to understand, and helps the client to de-reflect from the problems alone, to what has been tried, what resources exist, etc.
