New Theme Pack 12 - Roots of Child Guidance

Theme Pack 12 - The Roots of Child Guidance: "The Physician as Educator" and "The Child's Need for Affection," by Alfred Adler.

In his earlist writings as a physician, before developing his principles of psychological theory and practice, Adler urges the medical community to look at the education of children. He stresses the avoidance of punishment as well as the seminal importance of affection. These articles foreshadow his later conception of social interest as a central factor in personality development.
