The neurotic constitution : outlines of a comparative individualistic psychology and psychotherapy by Alfred Adler( Book )

In this book, Adler discusses his theories on the comparative individualist psychology of neuroses and its implications for understanding psychopathology. Employing his theory of somatic inferiority, the author advances an emprirical basis upon which normative standards of behavior can be established and compared against deviations from the normative standards to arrive at a better understanding of what constitutes psychopathology.

Psychologies of 1930 by Carl Murchison( Book )

20 editions published in 1930 in English and German and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In planning Psychologies of 1930 we have tried to profit from all the serious criticisms that came to Psychologies of 1925. The former category of "Purposive Psychology" is here presented under the rubric "Hormic Psychology" and is expounded by the leading exponent of both rubrics. The large group of students who have come from Titchener's laboratory are represented by four different points of view. It may be made selfevident whether or not it is appropriate to apply the term "Structuralism" to the doctrines of this group. The present-day theories of the Leipzig laboratory are added to the Berlin group under the more general title of "Configurational Psychologies," it being definitely understood that this classification is applied by the Editor only. The three leading Russian schools of psychology are here presented in comparable, theoretical form for the first time in the English language. The Factor School of Psychology and three Analytical Psychologies appear also as distinct additions to the program of Psychologies of 1925. A separate section on some non-sectarian fundamental problems has also been added"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
The pattern of life by Alfred Adler( Book )

39 editions published between 1930 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The art of understanding human nature is the art of understanding the dynamic patterns of human conduct. Alfred Adler has given us the key to this understanding in his monumental contributions to modern psychology, but before the compilation of this volume of case histories the student of the methods of Individual Psychology has been compelled to search for his case material among the German publications of Adler and his pupils. Many of these published cases deal with conditions germane to continental environments, but puzzling to American readers. The principles and practice of Individual Psychology, however, are universally valid in their application, as this volume of purely American cases demonstrates. Readers of this book should realize that it is not a comprehensive treatise on psychotherapy, but rather an outline of childhood neuroses and a key to the art of reading case histories. Its chief value lies in acquainting all those who have to deal with children and adults with the dynamic patterns of human conduct. The technique of cure can no more be taught by such a volume than the art of etching can be taught by a treatise on the various physical and chemical processes that comprise the technique of preparing and printing a copper-plate. The book will have fulfilled its purpose if it succeeds in encouraging all who study its pages to view human beings not as static machines designated by labels, but as moving, living, purpose-fulfilling entities striving for significance and security in a perplexing world"--Introduction.

Study of organ inferiority and its psychical compensation; a contribution to clinical medicine by Alfred Adler( Book )

47 editions published between 1907 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this book is to add to clinical medicine a further principle of research. From the completeness and the import of these early results I am sure that I have come upon very fruitful territory. To me, moreover, it was an attractive task to see our benumbed and thwarted conceptions of disease completely dissolved; to be able to observe human pathology in its making

Guiding the child on the principles of individual psychology by Alfred Adler( Book )

56 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Under the leadership and inspiration of Dr. Alfred Adler, a group of physicians and educators have in the last few years organized twenty-eight child guidance clinics in Vienna, Berlin and Munich. Conducted according to the tenets of Individual Psychology, these clinics have revealed many new and stimulating problems that are as applicable to conditions in America and England as in the experimental countries. The procedure and results of the actual day-by-day work is given in this volume. The book is designed as an organized and connected account of the problems, accomplishments and failures encountered in the daily work, reported from actual experience by the experts in charge. Dr. Adler has edited the volume and assigned each subject to the specialist in that field, to the end that there may be no omission and no repetition. The result is a closely knit account of inestimable value to the welfare worker, the physician, and the forward-looking parent. The book does not sacrifice fact to popular appeal, but at the same time, it has been carefully prepared to meet the needs of the individual parent as well as the progressive group worker.
