Buddhism and Humanistic Psychology

Buddhist Psychology offers a comprehension of mental process that has created in the course of recent years. It offers the West a critical new point of view on human communication and mental process. An imperative standard of Buddhist psychology is karma. Karma implies activity or an action. Buddhist psychology is fundamentally about self-learning discovering more about your identity, understanding your choices, activities, contemplations, sentiments, and so on. In some part of Buddhist brain research has been important to those professions in the west devoted to reducing human suffering: medicine, psychiatry, psychology or brain research, nursing, and social work. Components of Buddhist psychology have been incorporated into psychotherapeutic practices for a variety of psychopathological conditions, including depression, anxiety, addiction and stress. Logical essayists from the whole scope of clinical psychology and psychiatry, ranging from psychoanalysis to cognitive to behavioral to humanistic hypothesis, have every single tended to part of Buddhist psychology.  Mindfulness, considered the heart of Buddhist psychology, has been coordinated into each school of psychotherapy and has turned into a noteworthy treatment worldview in its own privilege, with demonstrated adequacy for treating depression, anxiety, irritable bowel, chronic pain, smoking, insomnia and numerous different conditions. It is truly believed that the enthusiasm for Buddhist thoughts and practices will just become over the coming decades.

Humanistic psychology is a psychological perspective that emphasizes the study of the whole person. Humanistic psychologists look at human behavior not only through the eyes of the observer, but through the eyes of the person doing the behaving. The major theorists considered to have prepared the ground for Humanistic Psychology are Otto Rank, Abraham Maslow, Carl Rogers and Rollo May. Maslow was heavily influenced by Kurt Goldstein during their years together at Brandeis University.

The humanistic perspective is an approach to psychology that emphasizes empathy and stresses the good in human behavior. In politics and social theory, this approach calls for human rights and equality. In counseling and therapy, this approach allows a psychologist to focus on ways to help improve an individual’s self-image or self-actualization the things that make them feel worthwhile.
