Founded in 1952 by Rudolf Dreikurs, the Adler School of Professional Psychology was originally known as the Institute of Adlerian Psychology and then the Alfred Adler Institute of Chicago before assuming its current name in 1991. Dreikurs was a follower of famed psychologist, Alfred Adler, and chose to name the school in honor of his mentor. Adler was a physician and psychotherapist who developed the field of Adlerian psychology – also known as individual psychology - which emphasized the effects of family and social factors on mental health. Today, the Adler School is the oldest independent psychology school in North America.
