Continuing the Conversation
Saybrook students, faculty, and alumni, and the public members of the global humanistic community are anything but shy and certainly not all of one mind! Sample our active blogs and join the conversation. You'll find thought-provoking ideas, stimulating intellectual challenge, and vibrant debates on highly relevant topics. We welcome everyone's participation!
- The Saybrook Forum | Humanistic Thought from the Library to the Street: Our premier blog, the Saybrook Forum includes topics of interest, Saybrook news, and summary posts from our other blogs. It's a great way to keep your finger on the pulse of the humanistic community and stay up-to-date on what your colleagues and friends are up to. Contribute your perspective on psychology-related topics that hit the daily news, from a debate over using anti-depressants to "treat" grief to the high rate of suicides among war veterans; from the redefinition of autism to addressing the role of mental health (and mental health providers) as part of resolving issues around gun violence.
- Rethinking Complexity | Studying Systems for a Humane & Sustainable World: An engaging environment for students, faculty, alumni, and other professionals interested in Leadership and Management, especially around the areas of climate change, resource use, social innovation, and social justice. Explore these issues, examine best practices, and share critical research at the cutting edge of how organizations behave, systems change, and complexity can be managed for the good of humanity. Rethinking Complexity holds a system must be sustainable and support the human potential of the people it touches before it can be considered effective. What's your view?
- The New Existentialists | Breaking New Ground to Humanize the World Around Us: This blog reaches most deeply into Saybrook's more than 40-year history at the forefront of humanistic psychology. The New Existentialism movement is applied, science-based, embraces spirituality, and learns from multiple cultures. "It matters that people have a way of looking at their lives that lets them ask the big questions and determine how they want to live – and that this is supported by therapists and mental health professionals. Supported by our community in Department of Humanistic and Clinical Psychology and our specialization in Existential, Humanistic & Transpersonal Psychology, among others.
