Humanists focus upon potentials. Humanist do not believe that human being are pushed and pulled by mechanical forces, either of stimuli and reinforcements (behaviorism) or of unconscious instinctual impulses (psychoanalysis). HUMANIST PSYCHOLOGY
They believe that humans strive for an upper level of capabilities. Humans seek the frontiers of creativity, the highest reaches of consciousness and wisdom. HUMANISTS CONTINUED
MASLOW SAID: All human behavior is motivated by a desire to satisfy needs. In order for a person to keep striving towards the ultimate in his/her growth there has to be a feeling of accomplishment
LOVE AND BELONGING Affection Acceptance Inclusion Friendship Intimacy Love and Belonging
ESTEEM NEEDS Self-Respect Self-Esteem Respected by Others Achievement Mastery Independence Status Esteem
SELF- ACTUALIZATION Achieve full potential Fulfillment Seeking personal growth Have peak experiences
PHYSIOLOGICAL NEEDS Developing countries: 80% of illness are linked to poor water and sanitation conditions. Over half of the developing world’s primary schools do not have access to water and sanitation facilities. Without these, the human body cannot function.
Safety and Security What are some ways you feel safe and secure? What situations can compromise one’s safety? How could this affect a student’s ability in school?
Having a sense of love and belonging allows us to give and receive affection from another person Where could these needs be fulfilled? LOVE AND BELONGING
This is the third level of the hierarchy. Remember once all or most of a person’s physiological and safety needs have been met, one can move on to LOVE and BELONGING.
Love and Belonging How can peer pressure cause these needs to take priority over physiological and security needs?
ESTEEM What are the side affects if an individual lacks self-esteem? Is self esteem difficult to attain in our culture?
A THOUGHT ABOUT SELF-ESTEEM You are a unique individual. No one else is like you in the whole world. This makes you special already! Our time in this world is limited. Make it happen for you so you leave your mark in history!
SELF-ACTUALIZATION Closely related with self-esteem. Cannot be obtained unless all other areas are mastered first.

WHAT SELF-ACTUALIZED PEOPLE MIGHT DO: Pray Problem Solve Develop Ideas that would help themselves and others. Help others Do the best they can do at what they do. Enjoy the journey to reaching their goals as much as reaching it. Enjoy the humor in different situations and laugh at themselves. Take time to discover themselves and their individual potential.
Who is a self-actualized person you know of? Can a high schooler be self-actualized?
ONE MORE THOUGHT Some behaviors may be more than one level. Example: Eating Dinner is both a Physiological Need (food) and a Love and Belonging Need (social).
