Mission Statement

The Association of Humanistic Psychology is a diverse international community welcoming members from all professions. AHP champions whole person healing and somatic psychology, and supports the capacity and freedom of people everywhere to choose, to grow, and to realize life's full potential. It is grounded in the application of humanistic psychology's principles in helping to create a world culture of peace. Core Values: - a belief in the worth of persons and dedication to the development of human potential. - an understanding of life as a process, change is inevitable. - an appreciation of the spiritual and intuitive. - a commitment to ecological integrity. - a recognition of the profound problems affecting our world and a responsibility to hope and constructive change.


The Association of Humanistic Psychology is an international non-profit association of people committed to exploring and furthering the evolution of the human spirit. The association was formed in 1962 by Abraham Maslow, Carl Rogers, Charlotte Buhler, Rollo May, Virginia Satir and other founders of the personal growth movement, to foster the ability of each person to find and express their maximum potential as human beings. This emphasis on consciousness, human dignity, and the capacity to direct our own destinies has come to be known as Humanistic Psychology. AHP produces conferences, events, workshops, publications, and supports communities and projects worldwide. Our members are drawn from every continent and equally as many professions. AHP attracts therapists, teachers, medical and healing arts professionals, consultants, body workers, artists, lawyers, social workers, public servants, scientists, environmentalists, corporate managers, activists, philosophers, theologians, futurists, and politicians. This means that personal encounter and social responsibility are at the heart of what we do. At a time when boundaries between human sciences are starting to breakdown, humanistic psychology is actively developing a shared vision among diverse communities.
