Deepening Our Adlerian Understanding

Description: Alfred Adler and Rudolf Dreikurs lived in very difficult times that spanned World War I, the Russian Revolution, the Spanish Flu, a wave of revolutions in Europe, economic depression of the 1920s, and the rise of the Nazi power. Adler did not live to witness the terrible devastation and crimes against humanity during World War II, but Rudolf Dreikurs lived through the losses of WWII, post-war world changes, and the turbulent 1960s. While bringing losses, disillusionment, and often despair, these events provided Adler and Dreikurs with many significant observations of human nature, human communities, and the world. The miracle of Social Interest and the idea of belongingness too were the direct result of war time experiences for Adler and Dreikurs. These observations, active clinical and social practice by both Adler and Dreikurs, and their lived experiences are at the heart of Adlerian psychology. 

Join Dr. Marina Bluvshtein for an opportunity to learn about Alfred Adler's and Rudolf Dreikurs' lives during the global turbulences of their times, to understand the legacy of their contributions, and to get inspiration for better, more cooperative social living.
