Classical Adlerian Depth Psychotherapy: Volume II

Creative Case Analysis:
Uncovering the Fictional Final Goal
& the Counter-Fiction That Hides It

by Henry T. Stein, Ph.D.


          Although Alfred Adler emphasized the importance of translating all case material into psychological movement, little has been written about how to accomplish this therapeutic task. In order to understand the uniqueness of each personality, the Classical Adlerian approach uses all of Adler's constructs in the search to uncover the fictional final goal and the counter-fiction that hides it.

          Part One: "Psychological Movement" reviews oAdler's theoretical constructs and how to use them in interpreting the client's thinking, feeling, and behavior, in relation to external demands and difficulties.

          Part Two: "Life Style Analysis" explores the creative diagnostic process, including the influences of brain dominance, feeling tone theory, and qualitative data analysis. Strategies are suggested for gathering, organizing, visualizing, expanding, analyzing, and synthesizing case information, leading to a comprehensive life style analysis. Adler's vision of optimal development and Abraham Maslow's ideal of self-actualization guide the formation of treatment planning.

          For clinician's comfortable with computer technology, applications are recommended for recording, organizing, and displaying case information and personal impressions.

          Part Three: "Case Illustrations" presents four case summaries showing the Classical Adlerian approach, and three examples of providing the missing developmental experience (MDE) in a group therapy setting.

          Appendices include graphic illustrations of the diagnostic process and the provocative article, "Fictions, Counter-Fictions, and Magic," describing our neurological susceptibility to deception.
