*Logotherapy regards "stuckness" or stymied contexts or existential challenges as opportunities to grow, learn and explore new meanings.  The approach presents a person with time to consider changes, possibly by reflecting and engaging in introspective thought that can lead to more self-realisation. It could include a review of all the available options of choice, challenging existing beliefs, engaging in attitude modulation or exploring the possible meaning(s) within the stuckness (Lukas, 2000).
