This chapter applies the moral-therapeutic perspective to philosophical counseling. Philosophical counseling applies ethical perspectives, critical thinking, and other philosophical resources to help individuals pursue meaningful lives and cope with personal problems. Philosophical counselors embraced a morality-therapy dichotomy in order to distinguish their moral-oriented endeavors from the health-oriented work of psychotherapists. Philosophical counseling becomes more coherent by embracing an integrated, moral-therapeutic perspective centered on the themes of healthy morality, responsibility for health, and moral-laden mental health.
