Default Re: Introduction to the Study and Discussion of Alfred Adler's Journal Articles

The ideal climate for these discussions would be a vigorous range of perspectives and levels of experience. I encourage the beginning student to question and elicit reponses from seasoned clinicians. This level of exchange is essential for appreciating and digesting Adler's wisdom--reading is not enough. Also, most of Adler's ideas, formulated in the early 1900's have held up remarkably well, but some deserve a hearty critical examination--this could generate a dyanamic exchange for the scholarly. It is through these challenging dialogues that Adler's ideas can be appropriately affirmed, critiqued, and brought to life with illustration. Be assured that your comments and questions are appreciated, so plunge right in--even if you are a student who has just discovered Adler. For a perspective on our study schedule, select the "Calendar" link and check the dates for focusing the disucssion on specific chapters from "The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler." By following this chronological exploration of Adler's clinical writings, you'll get a more profound insight into his theory, philosophy, and style of psychotherapy--significanlty beyond the content of his popular writings.
