Adler School of Professional Psychology is a non-profit institution of higher education and independent graduate school of psychology located in Chicago, Illinois and Vancouver, British Columbia. As the oldest independent psychology school in North America, the Adler School continues the pioneering work of psychiatrist and first community psychologist Alfred Adler by graduating socially responsible practitioners, engaging communities, and advancing social justice.
The Adler School offers degrees in clinical psychology (Psy.D.) and several master’s degree programs, enrolling more than 1,199 students at both campuses. The current president of The Adler School of Professional Psychology is Raymond E. Crossman, Ph.D. He was appointed the fifth president of school in 2003 and since then has realized a new vision, new academic programs, and significant growth.
The Adler School strives to attract applicants to its graduate programs who are interested in the interface between psychology and social justice, rather than those who are merely interested in the private practice of counseling and clinical psychology.
