Adlerian Psychology Overview

Alfred Adler called his theory “Individual Psychology “. 

Adlerians are concerned with understanding the unique and private beliefs and strategies that each individual creates in childhood and which then serve as the individual’s reference for attitudes, behavior, and private view of self, others and the world.

Adlerian psychotherapy favors a therapeutic relationship which is interactive,cooperative, supportive, empathic, non-dogmatic and “common-sensical”.We use and encourage a creative approach to problem solving. Individual Psychology is a system of theory and practice built upon psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, existential and humanistic principles.
