Deepening Our Adlerian Understanding

Session Title: Bridging the Cultures - Adlerian Psychology and Positive Discipline

Session Description 

The session will focus on exploring basic Adlerian Theory concepts through the lens of my journey into Adlerian Psychology as a professional counselor, educator, and a parent. The session will provide information on foundational Adlerian concepts with scholarship and personal reflections. I will discuss how Adlerian theory can be understood in a more collectivist cultural context. The session will also provide information on raising children as immigrants in the light of Adlerian theory and Positive Discipline.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. understand the foundational concepts of Adlerian theory.
  2. identify key cultural dimensions and how they relate with Adlerian theory concepts, specifically how the theory can be understood in collectivist, high context cultures.
  3. reflect on raising bi/multicultural children through the lens of Positive Discipline.
