Contrary to the traditional psychoanalysis, the humanistic approach emphasizes the personal potential of any individual. The basic assumption is that all humans have all of the abilities they require to (re-)gain health and wealth. The entire individual is a permanent process of change and becoming.
But sometimes we seem to be cut-off the source of our potentials while the full responsibility completely remains to the individual him/herself.
Typical humanistic approaches can be found:
- Gestalt therapy (Perls)
- Talking psychotherapy (Rogers)
- Logotherapy (Frankl)
- Psychodrama (Moreno)
- Hypnotherapy (Milton Erickson)
