Our Mission

Now Available Online!Check our Newsletter for Calendar Updates

The South Carolina Society of Adlerian Psychology (SCSAP) was founded in 1974.  Originally known as The Columbia Adlerian Society, the Society nurtured the spread of Adlerian Psychology across South Carolina.  The Society held its first Fall Conference in Myrtle Beach, SC in 1982.  We have hosted national and international speakers and supported the spread of Adlerian Theory not only in the United States, but around the world. Our purpose is to promote the knowledge, training, and teaching of the Individual Psychology of Alfred Adler. Our membership includes educators, psychologists, business people, counselors, social workers, family therapists, child care teachers, and students. SCSAP supports the enlistment and involvement of all people who support the philosophy and principles of Individual Psychology.

South Carolina Society of Adlerian Psychology has been approved by NBCC as an Approved Continuing Education Provider, ACEP No. 5167. Programs that do not qualify for NBCC credit are clearly identified.  South Carolina Society of Adlerian Psychology is solely responsible for all aspects of the programs.


Membership in the South Carolina Society of Adlerian Psychology is FREE. What a deal! The Society is funded by the annual conference so no dues are collected.
