Kirk J. Schneider, James F. T. Bugental, J. Fraser Pierson
SAGE, 15 août 2002 - 760 pages
`A cornucopia of valuable historical, theoretical, and practical information for the humanistic psychologist′ - Irvin Yalom, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, Stanford University

`The editors represent both the founding generation and contemporary leadership and the contributors they have enlisted include most of the active voices in the humanistic movement. I know of no better source for either insiders or outsiders to grasp what humanistic psychology is about, and what either insiders or outsiders should do about it′ - M Brewster Smith, University of California at Santa Cruz

`As a humanist it offered me a breadth I had not known existed; as a researcher it offered me an excellent statement of in depth research procedures to get closer to human experience; as a practitioner it offered me inspiration. For all those who work with and explore human experience, you can not afford to miss the voice of the third force so excellently conveyed in this comprehensive coverage of its unique view of human possibility and how to harness it′ - Leslie S Greenberg, York University

Inspired by James F T Bugental′s classic, Challenges of Humanistic Psychology (1967), The Handbook of Humanistic Psychology represents the latest scholarship in the resurgent 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 of 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 will play a critical role in that transformation. As increasing numbers of students and professionals rebel against mechanizing trends, they are looking for the fuller, deeper, and more personal psychological orientation that this Handbook promotes.
