Alfred Adler Quotes – #Quotes of Alfred Adler- Quotes Written by Alfred Adler Thoughts Sayings Words

Alfred Adler

Alfred Adler was a physician, psychotherapist, and the founder of Adlerian psychology, sometimes called individual psychology. He is considered the first community psychologist, because his work pioneered attention to community life, prevention, and population health. Adlerian psychology emphasizes the human need and ability to create positive social change and impact.
Adler’s goal was to create a psychological movement that argued for the holistic view of an individual as well as social equality. In this way, Adler’s theory of personality and humanity significantly differed from Freud’s—as well as significantly differing from much of today’s mainstream psychology. Adler believed that the social and community realm is equally as important to psychology as the internal realm of the individual.
Alfred Adler’s key publications were The Practice and Theory of Individual Psychology (1927), Understanding Human Nature (1927), & What Life Could Mean to You (1931). Other important publications are The Pattern of Life (1930), The Science of Living (1930), The Neurotic Constitution (1917), The Problems of Neurosis (1930). In his lifetime, Adler published more than 300 books and articles.
