Adlerian is an umbrella term that encompasses a diversity of approaches to psychology and psychotherapy generally related to the ideas of Alfred Adler.
Main Branches[edit | edit source]
Classical Adlerian[edit | edit source]
- See the main article Classical Adlerian psychology
Classical Adlerian psychology is based on Adler's original teachings and style of psychotherapy. It features a twelve-stage depth psychotherapy model that targets the dissolving of the style of life and fictional final goal, paving the emergence of the self/other/task actualization described by Abraham Maslow. The therapeutic technique is creative and Socratic.
Dreikursian[edit | edit source]
The Dreikursian approach is based on the theoretical and therapeutic variations developed by Rudolf Dreikurs. It features a simplified, four-stage counseling model of limited life style change. The counseling technique is more systematic and didactic. Dreikurs' teachings form the basis for many parent education programs.
Neo-Adlerian[edit | edit source]
The Neo-Adlerian approach reflects an attempt to mix Adlerian principles with those of Cognitive Therapy, Reality Therapy, Object-Relations, Positive Psychology, Solution-Oriented Therapy, and other popular psychologies.
Psychoanalytic-Adlerian[edit | edit source]
The Psychoanalytic-Adlerian approach, currently prominent in Germany, represents an attempt to merge Freudian and Adlerian theory and practice, apparently to qualify for insurance reimbursement.
