Incorporating the thinking, feeling, and behaving dimensions of human experience, the tenth edition of Corey's best-selling book helps students compare and contrast the therapeutic models expressed in counseling theories. Corey introduces students to the major theories (psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, reality, behavior, cognitive-behavior, family systems, feminist, postmodern, and integrative approaches) and demonstrates how each theory can be applied to two cases (Stan and Gwen). With his trademark style, he shows students how to apply those theories in practice, and helps them learn to integrate the theories into an individualized counseling style.

Adlerian Psychotherapy gives an account of Adlerian therapy and counselling from its origins to the present day, and proposes an advanced version of the theory. The main principles and concepts of Adler's thinking are re-examined from a contemporary perspective, placing them in the context of other contemporary approaches. Adler's techniques are described then applied to an understanding of what an Adlerian approach to family life would look like, using clinical examples throughout. The authors analyse the possible contribution of Adlerian theory in the context of the challenges of postmodern thought and postmodern society. It will be invaluable to professionals, practitioners and students of counselling and psychotherapy.
