Readings in the Theory of Individual Psychology presents an overview of the central theoretical tenets and specific fundamental concepts of Individual Psychology, framed on terms that make it possible to verify empirically many of these theoretical foundations. Sections of the book are organized into subject areas such as social interest, creative self, lifestyle, and family constellation, each containing seminal articles by Adler, Dreikurs, and other founding thinkers, and introduced with an original essay by a contemporary scholar. Readings in the Theory of Individual Psychology informs the reader of the recent and current theory in Individual Psychology, presented in order to generate new empirical research and future directions for development. Slavik and Carlson have pulled together a truly unique source for current thinking and theorizing in the field, providing the next generation of researchers, scholars, and scientists with the tools to move Individual Psychology into its next phase of refinement.
