Psychologists study how we think, feel and behave from a scientific viewpoint in order to help people understand, explain and change their behaviour. Psychologists engage in research, practice and
teaching across a wide range of activities. In general, the majority of psychologists work in five broad categories of employment: research, teaching, service provision, administration, and consulting. Many
combine two or more of these categories. For example, a master's level Psychological Associate may provide psychometric testing to students or psychotherapy, in addition to teaching at a local college. Depending on the practitioner's qualifications, such work can involve individuals, groups, families, and larger systems in education, health and mental health organizations, government and industry.
Graduates from the Adler Faculty of Psychology program find career success in a broad spectrum of mental health agencies, including work as practitioners in hospitals, schools, clinics, regional health teams, correctional facilities, employee assistance programs. Many have their own private practices. They have also found career success as consultants, researchers and faculty in governmental and non-governmental organizations.
"I attended and graduated from the Adler School in Toronto. ADLER had a reputation (in the professional community) for having clinically sound and professionally well-trained graduates. Thereafter, literally the next day after my graduation, I landed a job with an agency of my liking in Ontario.
Aside from the up-to-date research knowledge one received from the classes, the professors clearly went beyond the curriculum, offering insightful and compassionate assistance. Dr. Linda Page, the President, was easily accessible for consult - how many degree programs can say the same?
I highly recommend ADLER if you want an advantage in higher learning, and if you want to be part of the tradition that Alfred Adler started now over a century ago." MA student, Krisztián Kalász
