You are doing therapy with a 20-year-old client (Jeff) who was referred for therapy as one of the conditions given by the probation office. Jeff is on probation for assault and possession of illegal substances. This is his second offense. He is the youngest child in a single-parent family. He lives with his mother, who has always tended to be frequently away from the home between working two jobs and dating, even when he was still young. Jeff does not feel loved by anyone except his friends on the street. He seems very overinvolved or “wrapped up” in self-pity because of his absent father and uninvolved mother (per his perception). He can’t hold a job for longer than a few weeks, because he doesn’t really care about the job, and he has no plans for his future. How would you conceptualize Jeff’s problems from the perspective of an Adlerian/individual psychologist? What would you say is causing his concerns? Which Adlerian therapy techniques would you use to help him? Why did you choose those techniques?
