Summary Adlerian Counseling and Psychotherapy, now in its sixth edition, places a fresh emphasis on wellness both in concept and in practice. Written with the practitioner in mind, this text provides a definitive overview of the theory and practice of individual psychology based on the work of both Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs. The sixth edition retains the clarity, focus, and practicality of the previous editions and incorporates research, methods, and techniques to illustrate the usefulness of the Adlerian approach with children, adolescents, and adults of all ages in settings with individuals, groups, and couples. Parent education, career counseling, lifestyle assessment and counseling, and clinical diagnosis and psychotherapy are all discussed, as are applications for working with clients of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds and gender orientations. Neuroscience concepts and methods are described in case examples that illustrate their effectiveness across the lifespan. Readers will also find clinical examples from lifestyle assessment and family counseling meetings, as well as tables and figures that augment the activities and review questions included with each chapter
