Never Be Boring: Present Like A Pro by Taking Adler to the World

Annual Adrelian Summit
Vision, Passion, and Creativity: Adlerian Psychology as a “Living Force of Progress”

In 2020, Adlerian communities around the world celebrate the 150th anniversary of Alfred Adler, a founder of Individual
Psychology, a philosopher who challenged his contemporaries to see the wholeness of humanity, a social psychologist who brought society to a realm of psychology and took psychology to the streets, and a brilliant clinician who first recognized the unique creativity of human nature and our shared responsibility for ourselves, each other, and the whole of humanity.

Please join us at the Annual Adlerian Summit for lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and other activities as we continue to strive for that 20:20 vision that Adlerian theory encourages us to develop, and to master the skills in bringing that vision to everyday life.

As always, the event will include meals, books sales, essay contests, raffles for NASAP and ICASSI registrations, and much more. Please register for the Annual Adlerian Summit by March 13, 2020.

The event presentations and workshops have been approved for different CE credits, with a total available credits of 6.5 per day. Please read below for details.*

Awards Ceremony and Reception

Following the Adlerian Summit, please join us to celebrate the significant accomplishments and contributions of members of our community. We will announce the winners of the Adlerian Achievement Award and the Adler University Alumni Achievement Awards. The deadline for registration is March 13, 2020.
