Marianne Fry Lecture 2015: Humanistic Psychology in the 21st Century - The Next Revolution We Need with Peter Hawkins

  • Armada House Telephone Ave Bristol, BS1 United Kingdom (map)

Humanistic psychology in the second half of the 20th century made a revolutionary contribution in putting the human individual back at the heart of psychology and psychotherapy, and was in its time radical and liberating. However, in the 21st Century, and in a different world, we need to go well beyond individualism and human-centrism. Peter's Lecture will explore how humanistic psychology needs to radically renew itself to contribute to this urgently needed shift in human consciousness. He will address some of the many challenges that now face the whole human family and the ‘more than human world’ – notably, the ecological crisis, the emergence of so many faith-based conflicts, and the dangers of territorialism.
