Dan Barnes, Ph.D. Chicago Campus

Dan Barnes, Ph.D.
Director, Adler Community Health Services

Through its training programs, Adler Community Health Services provides much needed help to underserved populations. Because the bulk of my teaching is done via such programs, students receive an exciting, active, hands-on education. My job is to supervise services provided by students-in-training, with a teaching philosophy that might best be summarized as “leading from one step behind.”

Adler University provides a comprehensive education in the standards and practice of professional psychology but adds the sensibility of social responsibility. My professional values mirror this distinct point of view.

Please email or call me (312.662.4041) if you have questions or would like more information about me.
