Fig 5.4 – Human Potential Movement

Text: Page 235

In the 1960s, rebellion emerged in American psychology as Abraham Maslow, Carl Rogers, Viktor Frankl, Fritz Perls, and other leaders embraced the human potential movement (HPM), that became a revolution against mainstream psychology and organized religion. The human potential movement was linked to humanistic psychology because the movement adopted the theory of self-actualization of Maslow. Proponents believed that HPM could provide a life of happiness, creativity, and personal fulfillment because of the extraordinary potential largely untapped in all people. The goal of HPM was not only person-centered but strove to cultivate human potential to transform society.
