Episode 13 - Sponsored by Bethan Elisa Proofreading
In this episode, I talk to Dr Geoff Morgan, a Specialist Senior Educational Psychologist who works in Bradford Educational Psychology Team and trained as a TEP at Exeter University.
Geoff and I discuss what is meant by existentialism as a philosophy which focuses on the meaning of our experiences of existence. Geoff and I talk about our interactions with the ideas of Existentialism via our mutual gateway experiences of existentialism via Viktor Frankl and the meaning of life. We move to discuss the application of existentialism to the idea of adolescence and the power of helping teenagers to find meaning in their experiences of school.
