Welcome to the Association for Humanistic Psychology

The AHP was founded by a broad band of people from many disciplines, such as history, poetry, philosophy and spirituality. It is for academics, educators, health professionals, community and social workers, psychologists, counsellors and psychotherapists, sociologists – in fact, anyone who shares humanistic values and wants to make a difference.

The next workshop is a joint UKAHPP and AHPB Continuing Professional Development Workshop: UNEXPECTED POSSIBILITIES on Saturday 19 November 2016.
