Adler Graduate School
Adler Graduate School was founded in 1967 as the Minnesota Adlerian Society through the support of the renowned psychiatrist, Dr. Rudolf Dreikurs. Bob Bartholow, Susan Pye Brokaw, Bill and Mim Pew, and Bob Willhite also contributed towards the founding of the Society. Around 1969, an Adlerian teaching institute was created as part of the Society. This was started by a group of professionals dedicated to teaching the practice of Alfred Adler's Individual Psychology.
In May 1969, the Institute was separately chartered as the Alfred Adler Institute of Minnesota (AAIM); and in 1982, AAIM began a cooperative program with its sister institution, The Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. AAIM was first independently accredited in 1991 as a full-fledged graduate school offering various paths of study toward the Master of Arts degree in Adlerian Counseling and Psychotherapy. In July 1998, the Institute changed its name to the Alfred Adler Graduate School (AAGS) and to the Adler Graduate School in 2004. Today, it is a well-respected graduate institution educating and training mental health practitioners.
