A Sense of Belonging

by Charmaine McIntosh | on September 22, 2020

Sense of Belonging

The founder of Adlerian Psychology, Alfred Adler believed that each individual has the goal of belonging and feeling significant in their lives.  Humans strive for belongingness and meaning. When we feel that we belong, we are happy.  

A sense of belonging (social interest) creates cooperation, and we want to contribute to the community and society.  It is important to feel that you are not along; that is why having a sense of belonging is so fundamental in Adlerian Psychology and the human race.
