Make plans now to attend the ISIP Annual Conference on March 1st & 2nd, 2024! The conference will be at the Riverside Hotel in Boise Idaho. We will also have the conference available virtually through the Zoom platform.

“Simple and Broad: Discovering Adlerian Psychology in All Aspects of Life.”


Adlerian Psychology is not a theory confined to the work of counseling and psychotherapy; rather, it is a grand theory of human behavior and flourishing that can be witnessed and applied outside of a clinical setting. This workshop will seek to broaden the range of application of Adlerian theory, as well as demonstrate how this broadening can feed back into clinical work, where simple approaches will be demonstrated with the goal of staying focused on the Life Tasks and Social Interest.

We are planning to offer this conference both in person at the Riverside Hotel in Boise Idaho and Virtually online via the Zoom platform. During registration participants will select whether they are attending in-person or virtually through Zoom. All participants will receive the information needed to attend virtually in case a situation arises that they cannot travel to the conference.

Learning Objectives:  

  • Participants will identify how Adlerian concepts and theory applies to disciplines outside of clinical work. 
  • Participants will recognize Adlerian dynamics in literary/film analysis, current events, politics, and social issues.
  • Participants will identify ways to simplify Adlerian concepts and techniques in clinical work with clients.
  • Participants will develop skills for investigating clients’ lifestyles with a focus on simplicity.
  • Participants will apply the concepts of Life Tasks, equality, and cooperation to clinical and non-clinical disciplines.
