Adlerian psychotherapy is an effective brief therapy model that integrates strategies from many other approaches. Adler's ideas highlight the importance of not only understanding the individual but the social context. This approach emphasizes working from a multi-cultural orientation and highlights personal responsibility. The approach uses a four-step process: Engagement, Assessment, Insight, and Reorientation. The focus of treatment is positive as the therapist uses encouragement strategies to help the client identify their assets and strengths. Videotape examples of actual sessions will be used to highlight the process and demonstrate how effective short-term change is possible with this approach.
