Were you one of the lucky fifty? Fifty what? you ask. One of those lucky enough to join us for the First Annual Minnesota Adlerian Conference on September 15-17, 2017. The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum in Chaska, MN was the venue where Dr. James R. Bitter (NASAP President) generously shared his experience, learning, warmth, and humor with an intimate intergenerational group. The event, co-sponsored by The Adler Academy of Minnesota and the Adlerian Network, brought like-minded individuals for a weekend of sharing and caring Adlerian style.
Jim’s topic was “Helping Clients Change” and through morning lectures, personal life stories, and demonstrations he taught the principles of Adaptive Reorientation Therapy (ART), a technique developed by his friend and colleague Dr. Paul Rasmussen. Afternoons allowed participants to try their hand at applying these techniques with each other.
According to Jim: “It was the best teaching experience of my life in the most beautiful setting ever with some of the most warm, caring and wonderful people possible. It was a vacation with purpose. Thanks to all.” Considering that Jim has been teaching for over 30 years that is high praise indeed!
