Discussion assignment

Part I:
In a thorough, yet still somewhat concise way, answer one of the three questions below:

(1) According to Adler, how are the client’s dynamics understood and explored via the family constellation and early recollections?
(2) How do Adlerian Counselors view their function and role? How are strong and healthy therapeutic relationships created?
(3) What are the four phases of the Adlerian therapeutic process?

Part II:
There are several key concepts associated with Adlerian therapy. Select two from the list below. Give a brief definition as well as an example of each concept. Also, share your take on how understanding that concept could be helpful, or important when working with a client.

(1) Striving for significance and superiority
(2) Fictional finalism
(3) Social interest
(4) Birth order and sibling relationships
(5) Subjective perception of reality
(6) Basic mistakes and faulty assumptions

Part III:
What is one thing you like about this theory, one thing you don’t care for, and one thing you wonder about or still have questions about?

Part IV:
Part IV of the discussion board is completely optional, but I do hope you take me up on trying it out. The task is to try an Adlerian Technique on yourself. Pick one day of the week to try it out as many times throughout the day and see what you think. This is where you have the opportunity to try out an Adlerian technique of yourself if you. In your post share why you chose to try out and why, what it was like for you, what insights came from the experience, if you could picture it being helpful for clients, and/or anything else you wanted to share. These can be personal so share to what level you are comfortable sharing.

There are many different Adlerian Techniques but I recommend choosing one of the three following techniques. Instead of explaining the techniques here, I have three short video clips here that explain the techniques and give a demo of a counselor using the techniques with a client. Just a heads up, Dr. LeGrand doesn’t exactly come across the most empathic in these video clips. With that said, he does do a nice job paraphrasing (an important basic skill we hope all students master), also does a nice job explaining these techniques in simple terms. I hope watching the videos can help you not only have an idea of how to implement the activity on yourself… but of course, also give you ideas of how to implement a technique like this in session with clients. Have questions, feel free to pop me an email.
