One of the therapy techniques offered to local veterans from Operation Rubix is Adlerian Therapy. Our therapist Robyn LaPorta, MA is a registered mental health counseling intern who provides counseling through individual and group therapy sessions.
Adlerian therapy is named for Alfred Adler, a one-time colleague of Sigmund Freud. It is a four-step process with our veterans:
- Creating a relationship of collaboration with the therapist
- A personal history assessment with emphasis on birth order and childhood memories
- The therapist offers insight to help the vet view their situation from a different perspective
- Reorientation with suggestions of active steps to take outside of therapy to reinforce the newly learned insights and to help develop a better understanding of themselves and their abilities
At the core of Adlerian therapy is the belief that an individual’s behavior must be reviewed in the context of how they fit into their community and society. Adlerian therapists explore birth order and how an individual fits into their own family to gain insight on how that person’s personality was affected in early life. It is a therapy structured to provide positive feedback, counseling looking out at the future, and encouragement to help veterans restore a normal perspective on life and their families.
Robyn LaPorta, MA has a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida’s Journalism and Communications School, and a Master of Arts with the Highest Honors in Mental Health Counseling from Webster University. She is proficient in a wide range of counseling techniques including Adlerian Therapy.
