Deepening Our Adlerian Understanding

Description: Social Embeddedness and Social Responsibility are the cornerstones of Adlerian theory and practice. We cannot understand ourselves and others without exploring our social context and the meanings we ascribe to our movement from the infant’s feeling of dependency and insignificance to a subjective sense of personal significance. This presentation will discuss Alfred Adler’s recorded childhood memories, interviews with his children and granddaughter, external biographies, an examination of his genogram containing five generations as well as the influence on his perspectives of his wife, Raissa Epstein, and his personal relationships with Sigmund Freud and Victor Frankl. The focus is on the roots of Adler’s emphasis on social embeddedness in his time and the significance of that emphasis in contemporary social life and professional activities of Adlerian practitioners and educators.

Learning Objectives:


  • will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the concept of social embeddedness as developed by Alfred Adler. 
  • will be able to discuss the influence of Individual Psychology as developed by Alfred Adler and Rudolph Dreikurs on the development of Positive Discipline. 
  • will be able to describe Alfred Adler’s belief in the importance of modeling social responsibility as a vital function of parent education leaders.
