The Adler Graduate School has a distinguished history in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area and region. Through the encouragement and support of internationally known psychiatrist Dr. Rudolf Dreikurs, the institution was initially founded in 1967 as the Minnesota Adlerian Society. It began in the Twin Cities as a small movement to present Adlerian concepts to the regional community.
Adlerian psychology/psychotherapy was developed by Alfred Adler (1870-1937). A historically influential psychiatrist, Alfred Adler began focusing the philosophical world’s attention on relatively new ideas in the early 20th century. He believed that it was imperative to become intimately familiar with a person’s social context by exploring factors such as birth order, lifestyle and parent education. Adler believed that each person strives to belong and feel significant. As part of the School of Individual Psychology, this new system focused on the importance of studying the entire individual in the context of a therapeutic milieu.
