The Annual Conference of the Society for Humanistic Psychology (Division 32 of the APA) was hosted by Sofia University in Palo Alto, March 13th-16th. Of the nearly 200 participants, a significant number were Saybrook CP Faculty, Alumni, and students from the PsyD, PhD and MFT-PCC Programs. Faculty Member Carol Humphreys, PhD, served as Co-Chair of the Conference and we all owe her a debt of gratitude for creating such a welcoming space for community, sharing, and learning.
Some Thoughts on an Integrative Humanistic Psychology
Kirk J. Schneider, Ph.D.

Humanistic psychology needs to move toward serious cultural and professional integration. By this I mean that in order for humanistic psychology to survive, let alone thrive, it needs to be much more proactive. It needs to reach across many more chasms of cultural and professional divides, if it is to live up to its founding impulse to re-vision and reenergize mainstream American psychology.
