  5. 5. Origins and Evolution of Humanistic Psychology <ul><li>Origins </li></ul><ul><li>The origins of humanistic psychology can be traced as far back as the Middle Ages when the philosophy of humanism was born.  The basic belief of this philosophy is that every person has worth and the right to achieve self-realization through reason and rational thought. </li></ul><ul><li>The early humanism movement began in 15th century Europe as a protest against the closed-minded religious dogma of the church's scholars and philosophers.  Modern humanistic psychology emerged in about the mid-1950s as a reaction by clinical psychologists, social workers, and counselors against behaviorism and psychoanalysis. </li></ul>
