The First Old Saybrook Conference (1964) was a significant event in the history of psychology. This is where Murray, Allport, Murphy, and Kelly relinquished there responsibility over to Maslow, Rogers, and May which validated humanistic psychology as an academic psychology (Schneider, Pierson, & Bugental, 2015). Attendees such as Abraham Maslow, Carl Rogers, Rollo May, and Gordon Allport represented several major schools of thought in the budding of the humanistic psychology movement. In reference to the humanistic psychology movement these attendees expressed a variety of necessary components. Maslow brought forth self-actualizing personality (Schneider et al., 2015). Rogers brought forth client-centered therapy (Schneider et al., 2015). May brought forth existential and phenomenological perspectives (Schneider et al., 2015). Allport brought forth the holistic perspective of human personality in the Humanistic Psychology Movement (Schneider et al., 2015). These schools of thought expressed by these conference attendees contributed to humanistic psychology’s place in America by establishing it as a form of humanistic psychology which in turn became a movement that has changed and developed over the years since it first came forth in Europe (Schneider et al., 2015). As of today, there are 52 separate divisions in psychology which represents und-verbindungen meaning side by sidedness of each other (Schneider et al., 2015). There is no limit on where the Humanistic Psychology Movement will go. Wellness and fairness are core values of humanistic psychology but not yet dependent on as the goal (Duff, Rubenstein, & Prilleltensky, 2016). Maybe the future of humanistic psychology will incorporate the goal of both wellness and fairness.
