Much like Freudian therapy, Alfred Adler’s individual psychology uses psychoanalysis often. Unlike the Freudian approach, however, individual psychology concerns itself with redirecting a person’s future drives and impulses, not dwelling on past ones. Individual psychologists work with clients to uncover values and assumptions, insightfully expose the person’s errors, and reorient him or her toward a more optimal way of living.
