Using Class Essays to Gain Adlerian Insight

From: Henry T. Stein, Ph.D. (htstei...)

A remarkably effective diagnostic strategy used in the classroom by
Anthony Bruck, an Adlerian Psychologist, was the assignment of four
essays titled: "What I Want to be When I Grow Up," "Childhood
Recollections," "A Dream I Had," and "My Family." In Chapter One of
"Educating Children for Cooperation and Contribution - Volume II,"
Anthony offers four case illustrations that demonstrate the Adlerian
insights that can be gained from this class assignment. A preview of
one case illustration can be found at
