"I encourage students to look beyond traditional
roles in psychology and commit themselves
to social change." Catherine G. McNeilly
Catherine G. McNeilly, Psy.D.
Adler University has a real commitment to continuing the pioneering work of Alfred Adler. His work as a theorist and practitioner and his model for working in the community at large—not just with individuals in an office—lives on at the University.
As an Adler graduate, I wanted to give back to the institution in a concrete way by showing students the value of this social responsibility-based training. I attempt to model the openness, empathic listening, and respectful attention that students will need to successfully practice psychology. These characteristics will help them treat clients and succeed in working with colleagues in an increasingly transdisciplinary model of service delivery. As a result, I encourage students to look beyond traditional roles in psychology and commit themselves to social change on a personal, local, and global level.
