Begin your course by reading Eva Dreikurs-Ferguson’s book, Adlerian Theory: An Introduction. As you listen to each lecture, you will have opportunities to reference the content of the book, so you do not need to study it in depth on the first reading.
When you have finished the book, listen to one of the lecture CD’s. When completed, write a short summary/reflection paper about what you have learned and what you think about what you have learned (see format noted below*).
Submit the paper to Dr. Joyce DeVoss at DeVoss@cox.net. If you prefer to submit a hard copy, please email Dr. DeVoss for her mailing address.
Listen to the second lecture (your choice). This time, when you write your paper, expand on what you have learned about Adlerian Psychology. Write what you have learned (one page or so) and what you think about what you have learned (one more page or so). Submit this second paper to Dr. Joyce DeVoss.
Do the same with the third lecture, continuing to expand on what you know. Submit that paper.
Proceed with the fourth and fifth lecture in the same manner.
Papers sent by email will receive a confirmation of receipt within a few days; those by regular mail within a few weeks.
