Humanistic Psychotherapy (#S003)
Humanistic-existential psychotherapy is a journey toward greater wholeness and aliveness. The late James Bugental, Ph.D., was the first president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, president of the California State Psychological Association. He is author of The Search for Authenticity, Psychotherapy and Process and several other seminal books. The client in this process does not necessarily alleviate symptoms or change behavior--but rather completes therapy with a larger sense of who he or she is.
