Welcome to the Adlerian Summer School 2024, a week-long event that offers you an opportunity to learn, grow and connect with others who share your passion for empowering people to overcome their difficulties and develop their strengths and social interest. This year’s theme is “Social Interest in a Changing World”, inspired by the concept which Alfred Adler introduced as the core of his theory of individual psychology.

Social interest, according to Adler, is the feeling of belonging and empathy that motivates us to contribute to the common good of humanity. It is the antidote to the feelings of inferiority and isolation that can arise from the challenges and changes of life. Adler believed that social interest is innate in all of us and needs to be nurtured and developed through positive experiences and relationships.

At the Adlerian Summer School 2024, you will have the opportunity to choose from topics such as exploring early memories through art therapy, dealing with challenging behaviour in young people, navigating change whilst maintaining humour, building connections from an Adlerian existential perspective, and more. Whether you are a counsellor, psychologist, teacher, parent, or simply a curious learner, you will find something that suits your needs and interests.

The 32nd edition of the Adlerian Summer School is a community of like-minded people who support and inspire each other. You will be able to meet and interact with fellow participants, facilitators, and speakers from different backgrounds and cultures.
