What I like about Adler Graduate School: 

Jeff became interested in Adlerian Psychology because it seemed practical, family-oriented and systematic. "I deeply appreciate the Adlerian emphasis on social interest and holism," he says, "and I find the techniques of Adlerian Psychology to be very user-friendly for both clients and practitioners."
