Volume 7: The collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler

New Translations by Gerald L. Liebenau -  Edited by Henry T. Stein, Ph.D.

Adler's journal articles, written between 1931 and 1937, encapsulate the most mature expression of his ideas on theory and practice. Of the twenty-eight articles included in this volume, five are devoted to child development: selection of symptoms, consequences of pampering, prevention of delinquency, and education. Another five cover theoretical issues: self-consistent unity of personality, structures of psychic activity, striving for superiority, and social interest. In three articles about psychopathology, he addresses the neurotic's character, symptoms, and picture of the world, as well as the prevention of neurosis; five more articles contain his ideas on compulsion neurosis, fear of women, alcohol and drug abuse, the mind-body connection, and psychosomatic disturbances. He offers practical diagnostic guidance in two articles about family constellation and earliest recollections. Finally, he provides a dramatic comparison to psychoanalysis, and then a rare insight into the technique of psychotherapy. This volume is an essential resource for anyone wishing to gain an in-depth understanding of Adler's remarkable, timeless insights into human nature and their yet-to-be-realized potential.

Sophia de Vries contributed five translations of Adler's later work to this volume. It was her initial efforts, more than fifteen years ago, that inspired the Classical Adlerian Translation Project. A number of articles, originally published in English, have also been included. My wife, Laurie J. Stein, edited the material to improve style and readability.

For readers unfamiliar with Adler's ideas, a brief overview, titled “Basic Principles of Classical Adlerian Psychology,” is included in the appendix. Other comprehensive articles, titled "Classical Adlerian Theory and Practice" and "A Psychology of Democracy" have been published in Volumes 1 & 2 of The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler. A deeper appreciation of the development of Adler's theory can be achieved by studying Volumes 1-7.
