  • Participate in our Future: 2015-2020 Strategic Plan (+)

    5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
    Vancouver Campus



    Every five years, the Adler School develops a new strategic plan. It is a six-month process involving our entire community of faculty, students, staff, alumni, trustees, community partners, and funders in helping to define the strategic goals and direction of our school. A Strategic Plan Steering Team has been appointed to guide our work throughout this process, and Beau River (Psy.D. ’10) has agreed to serve as the alumni representative.

    Our alumni were instrumental in helping us develop our current 2010-2015 Strategic Plan. That plan moved us to continue the pioneering work of Alfred Adler in new ways—clearly articulating our mission to graduate socially responsible practitioners, engage communities, and advance social justice.

    This new strategic plan will chart our course to realize our vision as Adler University. All Adler School alumni are invited to share ideas, provide feedback, and be a part of this process!

    This event is open to Adler School alumni. For the Chicago campus, the event will be held 10/14 5-7 pm. For the Vancouver campus, the event will be held 5:30-7p.m. A light dinner will be served at both events.

    To RSVP for the Chicago event, email Wendy Crupper. To RSVP for the Vancouver event, email Stephanie Haslam.

    This workshop presents an alternative approach to work with 'trauma', from a decolonizing anti-oppression stance, which focuses on the resistance of victims of violence and oppression, as opposed to attending primarily to the details of the trauma, which can be re-traumatizing for both the client and therapist. The workshop will include lecture and experiential work. This workshop is open to all Adler students, faculty, and alumni, as well as professional counsellors (presuming space is available). At the end of the workshop you will be issued a certificate of completion (this workshop is not for credit). The tuition for the two-day workshop is $410.
