This is a description.
The originators of psychotherapy were Freud, Jung and Adler. Adlerian therapy is still popular around the world as it integrates successful interventions from many other approaches. Adler shows how important it is to understand the individual and the social context. The approach highlights personal responsibility and emphasizes working from a multicultural orientation. The approach uses four steps: Engagement, Assessment, Insight, and Reorientation. The focus of the treatment is positive as the therapist uses encouragement strategies to help the client identify their assets and strengths. DVD examples of actual sessions will be used to show how short-term change can be achieved with this approach.
