Idaho Department of Health and Welfare employees were among those attending this year’s annual Idaho Society of Individual Psychology (ISIP) conference March 2-3 in Boise, with the Division of Public Health, Suicide Prevention Program, and Optum Idaho among the sponsors of the event.
IDHW Region 2 Clinician Brandon Clark, who is on the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) Team in Lewiston, was awarded the “Significant Adlerian Contributor” award for 2018.
A letter of congratulations was read to Brandon at the conference by ISIP’s training director. It included the following comment by Brandon’s clinical supervisor: “Brandon exudes a passion for his work with the chronically mentally ill each and every day with a desire to make lives more fulfilling. Brandon is always looking for positives and advocates on behalf of the clients he serves to promote their success in treatment and in life. ”
Adlerian Psychology is named for Alfred Adler, an Austrian doctor and pioneering psychotherapist who founded the school of individual psychology. Individual psychology emphasizes behavior that is based on mutual respect, social interest and cooperation.
