History of the School

The Minnesota Adlerian Society was founded in 1967 and was inspired by the work of Dr. Rudolf Dreikurs. The Society began in the Twin Cities area as a small movement to introduce Adlerian concepts to the community and provide practical ideas for parenting. Within two years, the Society was marked by broad public exposure and enthusiastic volunteerism. Initially a part of the Society, the School was started by a group of professionals dedicated to teaching the practice of Alfred Adler's “Individual Psychology”. On May 25, 1969, the School was separately chartered as the Alfred Adler Institute of Minnesota (AAIM), an independent, 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, and began offering classes. The Alfred Adler Institute of Minnesota offered courses for graduate credit beginning in 1972, and course work for graduate degrees beginning in 1977. In 1998 the Institute changed its name to the Alfred Adler Graduate School (AAGS), and in 2004 the School’s name was further simplified to the Adler Graduate School (AGS).

The Adler Graduate School is a self-supporting, non-profit organization dedicated to fulfilling its commitment to providing quality education, clinical training, research and public service to the communities of this region. Several factors contribute to the School's uniqueness. The organization grew out of a recognized community need for assistance in the development of more effective parenting skills. AGS’ subsequent growth has resulted from an on-going effort to address a variety of educational needs in the Twin Cities area; e.g., classes for prospective and practicing human services professionals and educators, lectures, and programs for the general public. Today, AGS is a widely respected, graduate-level institution, dedicated to preparing students for a wide variety of professional roles and challenges.
The School's practitioner-based faculty consists of carefully selected, experienced, practicing psychotherapists and educators who have a demonstrated talent for inspired teaching. Faculty members share a commitment to enhancing the effectiveness of the human services and education professions by providing exceptional learning opportunities for students. Faculty members’ work is guided by the ideals and philosophy of Individual Psychology. Faculty members are committed to making their community a healthier place in which to live.
The focus on field-based, experiential learning, with a strong, carefully supervised fieldwork component, and an emphasis on the integration of theory and practice (enabling the student to apply what is being learned during the educational process), results in significant clinical competence. This competence helps AGS graduates as they seek opportunities in the human service fields, both locally and beyond.
The Adler Graduate School offers a Master of Arts degree that can be customized into different emphasis areas, as well as supporting coursework in different Specialty Areas. AGS’ curriculum presents a broad spectrum of current theories of psychology, with an emphasis on Adlerian principles. Dr. Alfred Adler (1870-1937), the physician whose name the School bears, developed a theory known as Individual Psychology. Each person is viewed as an indivisible whole, as opposed to a being with distinct separation between mind and body. It is the School's conviction that healthy living comes from accepting oneself and others as equals, and continually balancing personal striving with the common good. Thus, throughout AGS’ programs, students are encouraged to live and teach the concept of equality, to offer encouragement, to be cooperative, to overcome self-centeredness and to make meaningful contributions to society. The advancement of these concepts is the cornerstone of AGS’ mission.
