Adlerian Psychotherapy gives an account of Adlerian therapy and counselling from its origins to the present day, and proposes an advanced version of the theory. The main principles and concepts of Adler's thinking are re-examined from a contemporary perspective, placing them in the context of other contemporary approaches. Adler's techniques are described then applied to an understanding of what an Adlerian approach to family life would look like, using clinical examples throughout. The authors analyse the possible contribution of Adlerian theory in the context of the challenges of postmodern thought and postmodern society. It will be invaluable to professionals, practitioners and students of counselling and psychotherapy.

A Primer of Adlerian Psychology offers an accessible, yet very learned, introduction to Adlerian Psychology. Also known as Individual Psychology, the approach stresses the unity of the individual, the subjective choices he or she makes and the goals the individual works towards he or she moves through life. Therapists can apply this theory in a variety of settings with populations of all ages, making it a highly practical and valuable approach. Written by two scholars with extensive knowledge and experience in this school of thought, this book covers the basic tenets of Individual Psychology geared toward those students and clinicians who are yet unfamiliar with Adler's work.

Adlerian Therapy: Theory and Practice introduces the reader to Alfred Adler's seminal approach to psychotherapy. Starting from the principle that human behavior is goal oriented and socially embedded, Adlerian therapy is a brief psychoeducational approach that emphasizes understanding individuals' characteristic ways of moving through life - the life style - before working toward change. The authors demonstrate the relevance of Adlerian therapy today by illustrating how Adler's ideas have influenced current practice and emphasizing the short-term nature of its interventions. In addition, the authors show how Adlerian therapy works in practice with individuals, couples, families, and groups, as well as in educational settings. This book is for practitioners of all orientations who want to ground their practices in a holistic theory that makes sense for today's world. Students will also benefit from learning about Adler's theory and flexible strategies.

Psychotherapy has undergone major changes in recent years, with a variety of new approaches including cognitive-behavioural therapy joining the more traditional and widespread schools of thought. These new approaches all share the epistemological assumption of constructivism, which states that there are alternative ways of looking at events and that we interpret events according to how we see the world. Constructivist Psychotherapy reviews the constructivist trends in psychotherapy which link these new approaches, allowing the reader to enter an entirely new dialogue. The book traces constructivist thought, elaborating on Kelly’s personal construct theory and the implications for psychotherapeutic theory and practice. Areas of discussion include: the therapist’s understanding of the client’s narrative a constructivist understanding of the person psychological constructivism and constructivist trends in psychotherapy Setting constructivist psychotherapy within its therapeutic, social and philosophical context and using case studies throughout, the book revisits 'Kellian' ideas and theories, bringing them up to date, to explore what it is to be a constructivist psychotherapist today. As such this book will be of interest to all psychotherapists, as well as anyone with an interest in the psychotherapeutic field.

Over the past 20 years, there has been growing interest in integration among psychotherapy theorists and practitioners. Historically, allegiance to specific theories or "systems" of psychotherapy was emphasized and even expected by particular "schools of thought." However, the current zeitgeist emphasizes common ground and convergent themes. Within this context is Adlerian theory/therapy, having originated in the first half of the 20th century relevant for today's integrative discussion. The diverse authors in this book demonstrate that the Adlerian approach soundly resonates with contemporary cognitive and constructivist therapies, and is indeed a relevant "voice" for inclusion in contemporary dialogues regarding integration. Part I includes chapters by Adlerian and Constructivist authors. Part II includes perspectives from Adlerian and Cognitive therapists. Part III presents responses to the prior chapters representing all three systems approaches.

Parsons and Naijian Zhang, presents theory as an essential component to both counselor identity formation and professional practice. Drawing on the contributions of current practitioners, the text uses both classical and cutting-edge theoretical models of change as lenses for processing client information and developing case conceptualizations and intervention plans. Each chapter provides a snapshot of a particular theory/approach and the major thinkers associated with each theory as well as case illustrations and guided practice exercises to help readers internalize the content presented and apply it to their own development as counselors.

Incorporating the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience, the ninth edition of Corey's best-selling text offers an easy-to-understand text that helps students compare and contrast the therapeutic models expressed in counseling theories. Corey introduces students to the major theories (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, and postmodern approaches) and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to a single case (Stan). With his trademark style, he shows students how to apply those theories in practice, and helps them learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style. This book is the center of a suite of products that includes a revised student manual, Case Approach to Counseling and Psychotherapy (2013), The Art of Integrative Counseling (2013) and media resources like the DVDs titled DVD for Theory and Practice of Counseling and Psychotherapy: The Case of Stan and Lecturettes, and DVD for Integrative Counseling: The Case of Ruth and Lecturettes, which features the same videos as the Integrative Counseling CD-ROM redesigned for today's classrooms.
