Adlerian, Cognitive, and Constructivist Therapies: An Integrative Dialogue

Overview

Over the past 20 years, there has been growing interest in integration among psychotherapy theorists and practitioners.

Historically, allegiance to specific theories or "systems" of psychotherapy was emphasized and even expected by particular "schools of thought." However, the current zeitgeist emphasizes common ground and convergent themes. Within this context is Adlerian theory/therapy, having originated in the first half of the 20th century relevant for today's integrative ...

Overview

Over the past 20 years, there has been growing interest in integration among psychotherapy theorists and practitioners.

Historically, allegiance to specific theories or "systems" of psychotherapy was emphasized and even expected by particular "schools of thought." However, the current zeitgeist emphasizes common ground and convergent themes. Within this context is Adlerian theory/therapy, having originated in the first half of the 20th century relevant for today's integrative discussion. The diverse authors in this book demonstrate that the Adlerian approach soundly resonates with contemporary cognitive and constructivist therapies, and is indeed a relevant "voice" for inclusion in contemporary dialogues regarding integration.

Part I includes chapters by Adlerian and Constructivist authors. Part II includes perspectives from Adlerian and Cognitive therapists. Part III presents responses to the prior chapters representing all three systems approaches.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Gary B Kaniuk, Psy.D.(Cermak Health Services)
Description: The book attempts to show the commonalities between Adlerian, cognitive, and constructivist therapies. However, the emphasis is really on Adlerian theory and therapy and how it is relevant for the 21st century.
Purpose: According to the editor, "some may believe that Adlerian theory/therapy, having originated in the first half of the twentieth century, is not relevant to dialogues on contemporary psychotherapy integration. I believe a careful reading of this book will dispel that notion." The editor adds, "Is Adlerian theory/therapy relevant for today's integrative discussion? The diverse authors in this book demonstrate that the Adlerian approach soundly resonates with contemporary cognitive and constructivist therapies, and is indeed a relevant voice for inclusion in contemporary dialogues regarding integration." Those worthy objectives are met in this book.
Audience: The editor does not specifically say for whom the book is written. However, given some of his comments in the introduction chapter, students, educators, and practitioners would benefit. I believe graduate students and practitioners would gain the most from this book. The editor and contributors are credible authorities in the subject matter of the book.
Features: The book first compares Adlerian and constructivist psychotherapies. Next, Adlerian therapy is compared to cognitive therapy, and finally, all three are viewed together through one lens to see how they may be integrated. The book is good because it compares the therapies head to head and reveals specific commonalities. It integrates both theory and practice of the three into a cohesive whole. This marriage may be a little strained but it is a nice start, revealing that the constructs of one theory fit fairly well into the others.
Assessment: The book is useful for the way it shows how the theoretical concepts of these three systems are similar. The contributors and editor are excellent writers and their purpose is unmistakable, i.e., to bring Adlerian theory and therapy to the forefront and show its applicability in today's marketplace of ideas. It is good to see systems of psychotherapy compared, especially from the student vantage point.
