Introduction to EHI and The Handbook of Humanistic Psychology by EHI's Vice President, Kirk Schneider, PhD

A Blog Series Introducing EHI Faculty and Their Contributions to the Second Edition of The Handbook


The Handbook of Humanistic Psychology 2nd Edition
Edited by Kirk J. Schneider, J. Fraser Pierson and James F. T. Bugental
Sage Publications, February 2014


For this new edition of The Handbook of Humanistic Psychology, there have been 13 new chapters and sections added, along with some 23 new contributors. Among these contributors are several from EHI including myself, Orah Krug, Nader Shabahangi, Ilene Serlin, and Troy Piwowarski. Major developments in humanistic theory, research, healthcare, eldercare, multicultural psychology, neuroscience, developmental psychology, awe-based spirituality, social and political psychology, and psychotherapy have all been vividly and methodically detailed. Moreover, the volume addresses key controversies that are brewing both within and without humanistic psychology. Among these are the withering pressures on mainstream psychology to shift further from its humanistic roots and to cater to military-industrial interests, the pressure on humanistic and general psychotherapy to stress short-term, solution focused interventions and the pressure on psychology as a whole to become a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) discipline.

EHI and The Handbook of Humanistic Psychology

EHI would like to present a series of posts on the EHI contributors to The Handbook of Humanistic Psychology and give visitors a look at the humanistic work that EHI professionals are doing in their fields; in practice as well as in education and outreach.
