Individual Psychology (Adlerian) Therapy Case Conceptualization: Billy Sunday Individual psychology, born out of examination and divergence from Freudian theoretical tenants, is an approach dating back to the early part of the 1900’s (Corey, 2017). Alfred Adler, the founder of the individual psychology model, spent significant time and energy evaluating and supporting psychoanalytical doctrines; after abandoning many of the psychoanalytic principles he formed of his own school of therapy in 1911 (Tan, 2011).
