What I like about Adler Graduate School: 

"I had only a superficial knowledge of Adlerian psychology when I began my graduate study", says Trish of her education at Adler. "My continued connection is based on a strong appreciation for the foundational principles of Adler's Individual Psychology." She also says she appreciates how those principles can be integrated with a variety of other psychotherapeutic frameworks.
