Event description

Description

The humanistic psychologist Carl Rogers stated, “to my mind the 'best' of education would produce a person similar to the one produced by the 'best' of therapy” (1969, p.279). His view emphasised the idea that both education and therapy should support individuals to reach their potential by providing environments that constructively facilitate learning. Given the potential for recent trends in social and educational policy to dehumanise the educational process, this lecture will consider how the values of humanistic psychology might be translated for today’s schools.

The session will be divided in to the following sections:

- Do I buy paper, pants or professionals?: highlighting some of the challenges and concerns that schools encounter when juggling competing demands for resources

- Something BAD is going to happen!: providing an overview of a recent project examining the impact of current policy changes upon the way that schools support the emotional wellbeing of pupils

- There’s nothing wrong with snowflakes?: Outlining the core principles of humanistic psychology/education

- I see humans, but not humanity!: Outlining the importance of prioritising humanistic principles in schools

- This might be a useful way of viewing things: Describing the issues that might be encountered if adopting humanistic principles in Schools
