Robert Baker, Psy.D.
Core Faculty, Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology Program

I believe that learning is an active process and attempt to promote a lively exchange of ideas and information between students and myself using a variety of teaching tools and techniques. I am passionate about both the clinical practice and the science of psychology and consistently blend my extensive knowledge of the science and theory of the field with real-life examples from my many years of clinical practice in a wide variety of clinical settings.

In addition to its clear focus on the issue of justice and the promoting of community involvement, the Adler School is also uniquely Adlerian. The School’s rich tradition of training clinicians in the practice of Adlerian psychology has always been central to the School’s mission and this work continues today as it has for more than the past 60 years.

I teach at the Adler School because of the students. I am inspired by their energetic and enthusiastic exploration of the same issues that continue to interest me in the field of clinical psychology. It’s a unique challenge and privilege to participate in the training of the next generation of clinical psychology professionals.
