Abraham Maslow - November 8th 2010, 02:14 AM

I'm doing a presentation on Abraham Maslow in my psych class... I have a lot of my points already planned out, but I wanted to ask... what are some things that I should definitely include?

Obviously I'm going to include humanistic psychology, hierarchy of needs, and his background. Are there any other aspects of Maslow's life/career/teachings that I should also include?

You could include several things. First, whether or not his hierarchy of needs is empirically supported in modern times. Second, how his humanistic psychological theories aided in formulation of certain psychotherapies as well as a relatively new branch of psychology called positive psychology. Third, his idea of B-values for B-cognition versus D-cognition. Lastly, you could explain peak experiences and how they are relevant in psychology and some religions.

But it depends on how long you have time to present because you want to focus on his main things of humanisitic psychology and hierarchy of needs. After that, you could mention relevance in psychotherapy and B-cognition.

I can rip you off, and steal all your cash, suckerpunch you in the face, stand back and laugh. Leave you stranded as fast as a heart-attack.

You should write about where he got his inspiration.. who is his mentors... (i think he followed some big name psych experts)

it have somthing to do with his ethnic background. I think hes a jewish person from germany too.

he married his cousin too

I hope this helps
