Classical Adlerian Depth Psychotherapy:
The Congruence of a Theory
By Erik Mansager.  This overview of the special issue on CADP sets the context in which the issue was conceived, why the given articles were developed, and how they were interwoven to illustrate our history, development and application.
Striving for Authenticity
Sophia J de Vries (1901-1999), who studied with Alfred Adler, Lydia Sicher, and Alexander Mueller, wrote this introduction in 1990 to a series of journal articles by Adler that she had translated. At the time she was living in Oakland, California, and was a consultant and senior training analyst for the Alfred Adler Institute of San Francisco. Her work served as an incentive to carry on the translation of Adler's clinical works and as reference documents for later translations.

Rediscovering Adler
By Henry T. Stein. The article addresses the importance of understanding Adler in his original expression rather than relying on contemporary summaries of his work. The author establishes The Collected Clinical Works of Alfred Adler as the foundation of Classical Adlerian Depth Psychotherapy Training, which is currently the only training based on Adler's original work, authentically representing him.
Conversations with Henry Stein
By James J. Wolf, a licensed marriage and family counselor in the San Francisco Bay area who has collaborated closely with Stein for more than 30 years. The interviews cover Stein's early development  and education, his collaboration with Sophia de Vries, and the development of the Classical Adlerian Depth Psychotherapy approach.  The article then focuses on current activities undertaken to promote Adler's original method and theory by means of current technologies.
Applying the Classical Adlerian
Family Diagnostic Process
By Jane Pfefferlé and Erik Mansager. The authors demonstrate how a thorough intake procedure can prepare the therapist for effective therapy.  They apply the Classical Adlerian diagnostic process in their conjoint work with a client family.  Case examples are used to illustrate the components: demonstrating its context, providing session content, and sharing some of the initial questioning.  The article concludes with a case assessment featuring lifestyle interactions and a tentative treatment plan.
Examples and Explanations of
the Socratic Method in CADP
By Sophia J. de Vries and Henry T. Stein. The following demonstrations by Sophie de Vries (1901 - 1999) include process commentary by Henry Stein in order to clarify the strategies and logic behind each of the therapist's responses to a client's statements. The "clients" are volunteers dealing with a single issue in a workshop demonstration.

An up-to-date (2020) listing of current publications.
Adler and Socrates: Similarities and Differences
By Henry T. Stein. This paper will give a brief overview of the art of Socratic "style" questioning, as used by Alfred Adler, Alexander Mueller, and Sophia de Vries. Its purpose is to reawaken a clinical interest in Adler's original, creative therapeutic approach.
Twleve Stages of Creative Adlerian Psychotherapy
By Henry T. Stein. Having studied with Sophia J. deVries for over 20 years, Henry Stein had tape-recorded and transcribed over 1100 hours of discussion about theory and practice. Her therapeutic technique, which she had learned directly from Alfred Adler and Alexander Mueller, had never been fully documented. With Sophia, Henry described, explained and analyzed the process of Classical Adlerian Depth Psychotherapy resulting in a 12-stage process. These are not steps to be followed sequentially – although they are presented in the frequently experienced order. They are rather essential aspects that together make up the process of psychotherapy as Sophia experienced it working with Adler and one of his close associates.
A Future for Adler's Vision: Critical Collaboration
By Erik Mansager.  The article suggests a way for Adler’s Individual Psychology (IP) to collaborate with mainstream psychology and psychotherapy by remaining true to original contributions of Adler. This ought to include offering critical research into these contributions to assure their continued beneficial use. The author opens with three no-longer-useful stances that Adlerians have taken when compared to mainstream psychology: “Leave us alone”; “Give us our due”; or “Acknowledge our pedigree.” It promotes as an alternative: “belonging”, “parenting”, “purposive emotions” and “spirituality” as areas strongly supported by Adler’s theory. If supported by research, the author argues, these would offer a point of “critical collaboration” between IP and mainstream psychology.
Adler and Maslow in Collaboration:
Applied Therapeutic Creativity
By Erik Mansager and Marina Bluvshtein.  In this article, the authors revisit the professional relationship, mutual influence, and enduring legacy of two major inspirations on the humanistic psychotherapy movement, Alfred Adler and Abraham Maslow.
Adler's Legacy: Past, Present, and Future
By Henry T. Stein. This essay is adapted from the keynote address delivered as the Heinz L. and Rowena R. Ansbacher Memorial Address in May 2007 at the 55th annual convention of the North American Society of Adlerian Psychology in Vancouver, BC.  The speaker critiques the current direction of Adlerian counseling and explores the basic tenets of Classical Adlerian Depth Psychotherapy.
