Volume 9 Just Published!!!

"Volume 9 of "The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler - Case Histories" brings together three of Adler's books: "Problems of Neurosis," "The Case of Mrs. A.," and "The Case of Miss R." Although these books were previously published in English, the text required substantial editing for readability. Adler's diagnostic brilliance now shines through without the distractions of dated terminology and awkward phrasing.

Volume 9 is a "must read" for anyone interested in the art of life style analysis. His remarkable theory springs to life in this superb series of richly varied case histories.

Volume 10 Just Published! Case Readings & Demonstrations

Volume 10 of "The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler" is now
available. It contains two newly-formatted collections of case
readings and demonstrations. Part 1, "The Problem Child," presents
Adler's personal interviews with children, their parents and their
teachers, in one of his Viennese clinics.

Part 2, "The Pattern of Life" includes transcriptions of Adler's case
readings and demonstration interviews with adults, children, and
parents. The demonstration-lecture series was held for students at the
New School of Social Research in New York City.

All of these sessions offer a vivid impression of Adler's exceptional
ability to make immediate contact with children and adults, his quick,
yet profound insights, and his vigorous optimism about human nature.
Through his case comments to students, brief interviews with family
members, and advice to children, parents, and teachers, he introduced
American psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and teachers to
a new method of helping families.

Re: Welcome to the Forum - Volume 11 & 12 of the CCWAA Now Available !!!
**Two New Books for Adlerian Educators and Therapists**
Vol. 11 & 12 of The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler

We are proud to announce the first English publication of two
remarkable works by Alfred Adler: "Individual Psychology in the
Schools," and "the General System of Individual Psychology."

Individual Psychology in the Schools," in Vol. 11 of the CCWAA,
represents Adler's first attempt to introduce Individual Psychology
into the schools at the Pedagogical Institute in Vienna. Although he
primarily addressed more than six hundred teachers in his lectures
between 1924-1927, he also hoped to gain the cooperation of
psychiatrists, psychologists, and parents in the process of "improving
the lot of children, teachers, and families." During this period,
"anyone can learn anything" became his famous educational motto. To
order, go to

The General System of Individual Psychology, in Vol. 12 of the
CCWAA, is an unpublished manuscript by Alfred Adler that was
discovered in the Library of Congress. The thirteen undated lectures,
identified as "chapters," form a complete series that Adler presented
in English, probably in New York City. Adler's terminology and style
suggests that the lectures were given later in his career, and
represent a summary of his matured theory of the personality, as well
as principles of prevention and treatment. To order, go to

An Essential Resource for Adlerian & Psychodynamic Psychotherapists
For the first time, Alfred Adler’s pioneering works in depth
psychology have been masterfully translated, and edited by
experienced, Classical Adlerian clinicians. The twelve-volume set
includes his clinical books and over two hundred journal articles in
their entirety, with clarifying footnotes and endnotes. Throughout
these volumes, Adler embraces a remarkable range of psychological,
educational, and philosophical topics. Many of the articles have
never been published before in English.

The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler is essential reading for
all clinicians, professors, and students of psychology who want to
capture the completeness and depth of Adlerian theory and practice
beyond his highly simplified, popular writings, or the abbreviated
works of other authors.

Students and researchers can now explore a vast range of psychological
subjects in a comprehensive reference work. Adler’s early writings
and his conceptual development can be easily traced through the
chronological arrangement of the material. His fully matured theory,
principles of practice, and abundant case analyses are featured in the
last five volumes. Volume 12 includes an overview of current
Classical Adlerian psychotherapeutic practice. Detailed indexes of
each volume facilitate topical searches.

Re: Welcome to the Forum - Ten Year Progress!
This week, we passed a significant milestone in the recognition of Classical Adlerian psychology--our main web page counter at has logged 500,000 visitors to our home page since we installed it in 1996. Curious about the volume and source of web page visitors, we recently installed additional, more refined counters that reveal the total number of visitors to all of our pages, as well as their states and countries. To our surprise and delight we discovered that the actual number of visitors to all of our pages has grown steadily from about 20/day in 1996 to almost 600/day in 2006. This now computes to about 200,000 visitors/year, and an estimated total of 1,000,000 visitors to all of our pages in the past ten years!

Although we were able to identify all the states and ninety countries of our visitors, we recently discovered a visually simple and appealing way to illustrate this information. In the upper left hand corner of our home page, at, under "statistics," you will see a small world map. If you click the "zoom' button, it will display a larger ClustrMap revealing the pattern and volume of visitors from all over the world.

Re: Welcome to the Forum - Ten Year Progress!
It's been a while since this last post - and also my participation in the Forum.
Congratulations on the success with the web site. Like all these 1000s of people searching the site I have recently found your information about Children's issues. They are very easy to read and refresh stages and strategies and such.Thank you so much.
But I wonder if you could direct me to a relevant article or professional that could answer my current question.
A child in my care who just turned one year has displayed such a strong 'Tantrum' today that I was really astonished. His looks 'thrown' at me were of such intensity and the force and strength he displayed with his body took me unawares. I have handeled all sorts of temperaments but have not come accross one at such an early age.
I feel to know now the reason of his discomfort, but to react in such a way has really caught me unprepared and made me search out this area a bit more.
Thanks for your comments

Re: Welcome to the Forum - Ten Year Progress!

Welcome back to the forum. The symptom of a ferocious tantrum is certainly impressive, but without knowing more about the child's general upbringing, as well as the circumstances preceeding the tantrum, it is difficult to understand the reason for his discomfort. However, it is not appropriate to discuss specific cases on a public forum. The first thing I'd check is if there are any immediate medical issues. Try reading The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler, Volume 11, Education for Prevention, Part 2, Chapter IX, "The New Situation as a Test of Preparation."

Re: Welcome to the Forum - Ten Year Progress!
Thank you Henry
I will have to order Volume 11 from your website - easy done!
Of course I understand that personal cases cannot be discussed on this Forum, but will endeavour to be mindful of medical and other issues that you alluded to.
Thanks again

Re: Welcome to the Forum - Ten Year Progress!
I'm looking for a 'place' to ask questions and gain feedback. I am fairly new to Adler but find reading Adlerian ideas/beliefs feels a bit like validation to the thoughts and feelings about parenting I could never put into words, or sometimes into practice.

I would like to have a resource to use when I'm stuck, or would like to discuss an idea, or get an opinion. I'd prefer to do this in a casual setting.

Is this forum a good match or do you have a recommendation?
