Alfred Adler’s Individual Psychology often impresses people as either being very simple (“nothing new” kind of reaction) or very (at times, too) complex and confusing. The reality is that Individual Psychology is based on the philosophy of human nature and values, and that makes it both complex and simple, filled with deep philosophical arguments and practical everyday advice for human living at the same time. Please read the assigned reading and view the video presentation. As you are reading and viewing, pay attention to your own reactions to Adler’s fundamentals, to what might feel like a common sense (“I knew this all along” type of reaction), and what might impress you as an “Aha” moment, and what might seem too complex to grasp and relate to.
