Creating Movement and Change through the Use of Early Memories

Adlerian Strategies  |  Clinical Demonstrations | Useful Applications


An afternoon workshop for psychotherapist, counsellors, social workers, physicians, psychologists, educators, clergy, and other interested in learning to effectively apply Adlerian theory and practice in their work with clients.

Creating movement and change with our clients is a core goal of any therapeutic relationship. Adlerian psychology focuses not on ‘symptoms’ but rather on exploring and addressing the underlying purpose that these ‘symptoms’ serve in a client’s life. Using Early Memories as a therapeutic technique, we can assess: a person’s beliefs about themselves, others, life and values; the client’s stance in relation to the counseling relationship; and individual strengths, assets, coping patterns, and interfering ideas.

The use of Early Memories can help to quickly identify how a client’s life today is affected by early childhood beliefs and decisions. This intervention can be used to powerfully and effectively shift clients’ perceptions and actions.

In this clinical workshop, our Adlerian team will:

  • Outline the steps in collecting, and analyzing early memories
  • Offer a live demonstration of ‘therapy in action’
  • Provide an opportunity to practice the use of early childhood memories
