Association for Humanistic Psychology
Purpose: Founded by Carl Rogers, Virginia Satir, and Abraham Maslow in the late 1950s, we have grown into a national organization comprised of educators, students, doctors, politicians, scientists, health and social workers, activists - anyone who shares humanistic values and wants to make a difference. We aim to facilitate the understanding of the Humanistic principles within the global community. Our primary focus will be in bringing together new knowledge and practices from a variety of emerging fields (science, policy, education, politics, the arts, therapeutic/healing practices, community and cultural growth, and personal and spiritual growth), and translating those new ideas through the lens of Humanistic Psychology.
These interpretations will help all of us to understand and influence our ever evolving world, from a Humanistic stance. The Humanistic approach encourages a proactive stance of activism, advocacy, and social justice that promotes awareness, wisdom, purpose, respect, interdependence, and peace.

Society for Humanistic Psychology (APA Division 32)
Purpose:We seek to contribute to psychotherapy, education, theory, research, epistemological diversity, cultural diversity, organization, management, social responsibility and change. In particular, we have been at the forefront in the development of qualitative research methodologies. Our longstanding interest in the well-being of all persons, and in the importance of living life with purpose and meaning, places humanistic psychology in kindred and even foundational relationship with the more recent positive psychology movement In expanding our self-conception we invite participation from APA members, associates and student affiliates who are open to the challenge of broadening the frontiers of psychology for the 21st Century.
