Rudolf Dreikurs legacy stretches beyond North America as the article states. He inspired the establishment of The Alfred Adler Institute in Tel Aviv, Israel as well as Athens, Greece and Bombay, India among other places.

Thank you, Rohn, for your feedback. Indeed, Dreikurs’ work inspired the establishment of further institutes worldwide.

I was Sadie “Tee” Dreikurs’s student and took Tee’s course “The Use of Art in Counseling” in 1980 when Tee was already 80 years old. After taking her course, I became Tee’s assistant for several years. When Tee was no longer able to teach I was asked to teach her course. Later, I took training to become a registered art therapist (1987-1991) and received ATR status in 1992. It was then that the Adler School of Professional Psychology asked me to create a M.A program in art therapy. The program was approved by the American Art Therapy Association in 1999. And yes, it is now one of the most successful programs at what is now Adler University and is being directed by one of my students, Jennifer LaCivita.

I just wanted to add that I also contributed to the MA in Art Therapy at the Adler Graduate School in Minneapolis, MN, also a successful program based on Sadie Dreikurs’s one course, “The Use of Art in Group Counseling.” The Director of this program is Craig Balfany.
