Social Justice/Civil Rights
In this presentation, Dr. Fitzgerald suggests that those who follow the guiding philosophy of Alfred Adler are in a position to make changes in the world. He discusses how Adlerian theory and principles can be applied to social justice issues and community health. In particular, he highlights the principles of equality, community, and social interest. These principles are placed within the context of the sociopolitical context of today.
