Adlerian psychology

(individual psychology, Adlerian psychotherapy)

Alfred Adler developed this method for understanding the person as an individuum, not to be divided; indivisibly embedded in the social context of family, culture, and history; the "unique variant" of psychological study; having a law of movement of his or her own, expressed in a self-created "Style of Living"; directing all thought, feeling, and action toward the goal of overcoming universal and inescapable feelings of inferiority or incompleteness.
