Overview

Volume I features two essential classics on child guidance for educators and psychotherapists. Part One contains the first English translation of Adler's book Individual Psychology in the Schools, initially published in 1929 in German, then in 1933 into Dutch, and later in 1936 into Spanish and Hebrew. Part Two contains The Education of Children, originally published in English in 1930, and newly edited for improved readability. Individual Psychology in the Schools represents Adler's first attempt to introduce Individual Psychology into the schools at the Pedagogical Institute in Vienna. Although he addressed teachers in his lectures, he also hoped to gain the cooperation of psychiatrists, psychologists, and parents in the process of "improving the lot of children, teachers, and families." Between 1924-1927, Adler attracted more than six hundred Viennese teachers to his course; these lectures became the basis for his book. The Education of Children also consists of lecture material. Presenting abundant and detailed insight into personality development, the book was apparently daunting to parents but appealed to a wide range of professionals. Adler emphasized the influence of exaggerated, early feelings of inferiority that can trigger an unhealthy striving for power in a child, often resulting in overt or covert warfare with adults. His primary advice to educators was to avoid discouraging any child at school. Typical of Adler's constant efforts to educate parents, teachers, and professionals, he attempted to democratize his contribution to psychology.
