Humanistic Psychology

Humanistic psychology, often referred to as humanism, is a perspective that emphasizes looking at the whole individual and focuses on concepts such as self-efficacy, free-will and self-actualization. Humanistic psychology is rooted in the belief that humans are innately good. Rather than concentrating on pathology, humanistic therapists work to help people fulfill their potential and improve their overall well-being.
