Life Style Analysis & Treatment Planning in Classical Adlerian Depth Psychotherapy

Henry Stein, Ph.D., announces his new book: "Creative Case Analysis: Uncovering the Fictional Final Goal and the Counter-Fiction That Hides It," the second volume in a series on the practice of Classical Adlerian Depth Psychotherapy. Part One provides the most complete exposition to date on how to translate a client's thinking, feeling, and behavior into goal-directed psychological movement. Part Two explores the creative process of life style analysis, including the steps of gathering, organizing, analyzing, and synthesizing case information into a comprehensive case analysis and treatment plan using all of Adler's theoretical constructs. Part three offers seven case illustrations. The appendix includes two client questionnaires; samples of a dynamic multi-generational genogram and timeline; several graphic images that clarify major constructs; and an article on fictions, magic, and neuroscience.
