The Adlerian Approach: Selected Articles.
Bullard, Maurice L.; And Others
Several articles are concerned entirely with explicating some of the core Adlerian principles which center, ultimately, on the purposiveness of all human behavior. Among the theoretical topics included are: (1) a conflict solving strategy; (2) the characteristics of the family constellation; and (3) the implications of misbehavior viewed as having a communicational purpose. Two sections of this compilation deal with the application of Adlerian principles in the classroom and in counseling situations. Three articles elaborate on the use of classroom discussions as effective means for children to gain insight into their goals as well as methods of achieving them. Story-telling and discussion in the classroom are also useful for developing a sense of sharing, generosity, patience and social interest free of the four goals of children's misbehavior. The section on counseling includes: (1) the Adlerian conceptual foundations of counseling; (2) a rationale for interviewing parents; and (3) an Adlerian elementary school counseling model. (TL)
