Given the unique circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, 28th Congress of the IAIP will be held online.

The 28th Congress of International Association of Individual Psychology will provide an opportunity to learn everlasting wisdom of Alfred Adler’s Individual Psychology and its approach to understanding human nature, and to discuss the solutions it can offer to healing of new psychopathologies in contemporary societies.
One’s ability to “see with the eyes of another, hear with the ears of another, and feel with the heart of another” is a measure of one’s health and a basis of optimism as a core of Adlerian approach.
