Book Description

This book reviews the extensive literature on early recollections and organizes various interpretive systems of evaluating early memories. The practitioner will find specific and detailed guidelines for administering and interpreting early recollections to help integrate these memories into counseling and psychotherapy. Following a carefully articulated contextual approach to early recollections, which synthesizes three perspectives - subjective, interpersonal and objective - come suggestions for using early recollections in the counseling process and a full-length case study to explicate the model and demonstrate the utility of using this approach.

Reviews

"This is a long overdue book on a very important topic. The overall scope and thoroughness of Early Recollections is of the highest quality. It offers very solid theory and practice and Clark makes a strong case for readers to begin to use early recollections by making everything so practical." -- Jon Carlson, Psy.D., Ed.D., ABPP Distinguished Professor, Governors State University
"Dr. Clark has completed an exceptionally thorough literature review of Adlerian and early recollections theory and research and has integrated this research in a comprehensive, well articulated, carefully organized and thorough presentation. He clearly is a master of the Adlerian approach and shares his knowledge in a clear and cogent manner. His book represents the state of the art in this area of study." -- Jane E. Myers, Ph.D., LPC Professor, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
