"The sixth edition of Adlerian Counseling and Psychotherapy is masterful in its scholarship and thought-provoking analysis. Providing solid theory and practice, the text is a first-rate addition to the Adlerian and therapeutic literature. Written in a clear and engaging style, Sweeney makes rich and compelling material accessible to students and experienced practitioners alike. As an up-to-date resource, the work reflects the latest trends in Adlerian thought, all while maintaining enduring value as a classic in counseling and psychotherapy."-Arthur J. Clark, EdD, professor emeritus, St. Lawrence University

"Tom Sweeney's Adlerian Counseling and Psychotherapy has been the new Bible of Adlerian psychology and counseling for decades now, and I am thrilled to see this edition in print. The attention to wellness within the Adlerian model reflects the best in the counseling profession and makes this approach the most comprehensive orientation to the helping professions. This edition, with its emphasis on the wheel of wellness and the indivisible self wellness model, its timely integration of perspectives from neuroscience, and its attention to cultural imperatives, demonstrates the value of Adler's work in individual, group, career, couples, and family counseling, with the road from psychopathology to wellness clearly marked every step of the way. This is not just for Adlerian counselors; it is a book that can inform best practices in all counseling models."-James Robert Bitter, EdD, NCC, professor of counseling and human services, East Tennessee State University

"The adage that some things get better with time is applicable to the sixth edition of Adlerian Counseling and Psychotherapy. In this text, Sweeney expands on, as well as updates, major points of Adlerian counseling in a user-friendly style that is pragmatic and focused on personal and societal wellness. The case examples are particularly helpful, and the inclusion of neuroscience methods is unique and valuable. Sweeney is the most notable authority on Adler in the United States today, and his book provides superb explanations of Adlerian theory and practice."-Samuel T. Gladding, PhD, professor of counseling, Wake Forest University
