The 28th Congress of International Association of Individual Psychology will provide an opportunity to learn everlasting wisdom of Alfred Adler's Individual Psychology and its approach to understanding human nature, and to discuss the solutions it can offer to healing of new psychopathologies in contemporary societies. One’s ability to “see with the eyes of another, hear with the ears of another, and feel with the heart of another” is a measure of one’s health and a basis of optimism as a core of Adlerian approach.
The congress will bring together representatives from all over the world. During the congress you will benefit from high-quality scientific content, get involved with our projects.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it will be organized virtually. This will allow more participants than ever to benefit from everything that it has to offer!
The 28th Congress of IAIP is an interactive experience allowing you to build global contacts and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Revitalizing Alfred Adler: An Echo for Equality
Mary C. McCluskey
Mary C. McCluskey DSW, LCSW is in private practice in New York City and teaches at New York University Silver School of Social Work. She is also a teacher and clinical supervisor in the psychodynamic program at The American Institute of Psychoanalysis.
The work of Alfred Adler’s Individual Psychology arguably applies to contemporary social work practice and education. The tenets of Individual Psychology are reviewed in the context of a historical sketch of Adler’s work as a medical doctor, psychoanalyst, and colleague of Freud. His eventual divergence from psychoanalysis to begin his own psychological and education movement which focused on social reform is emphasized. Individual Psychology is examined in detail including original case examples demonstrating his influence on and compatibility with contemporary social work theories. Empirical evidence is provided supporting present-day application of his theory. Adler serves as a much-needed example of a profes- sional who successfully and simultaneously advanced both the micro and macro world of mental health. Adler’s contribution deserves to be explicitly included in social work curricula.
