Think about words that relate to the term humanistic. There is human, of course. There are also humanity and humane. Consider how these words offer powerful clues to what humanistic theories explore and the views of people and personality they present.
From your work in Week 2 and the information you have gained in this week’s studies, you should know there are profound differences between psychoanalytic theories that perceive people as driven by internal conflicts and humanistic theories that see people in a different—and kinder—light. Yet how do humanistic theories help us understand human behavior and what it means to be human—in mind, body, and spirit? In this Assignment, you will analyze the contributions of humanistic theories and the two humanists you have studied, Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow. You will also consider whether and how those theories align with your own thinking about people, particularly in terms of how individuals such as Katherine from the Case Study achieve their potential, and think about how you might apply humanistic theories to this case study.
