The Handbook of Humanistic Psychology, 2e represents the latest scholarship in the field of humanistic psychology and psychotherapy. Set against trends toward psychological standardization and medicalization, the handbook provides a rich tapestry of reflection by the leading person-centered scholars of our time. Their range in topics is far-reaching—from the historical, theoretical, and methodological, to the spiritual, psychotherapeutic, and multicultural. Psychology is poised for a renaissance, and this handbook plays a critical role in that transformation. Increasingly, students and professionals rebel are looking for the fuller, deeper, and more personal psychological orientation that this handbook promotes.
