SHP’s 15th Annual Conference

March 25 @ 5:00 pm March 27 @ 5:00 pm

Toward a Post-Human(e)istic Psychology: Deconstructing, Preparing, and Engaging

Join SHP colleagues, students, professionals, and friends over a three-day virtual conference hosting a mixture of live and pre-recorded presentations, a poster session, and opportunities for socializing throughout the conference


This conference theme focuses on the future of humanistic psychology by acknowledging its past as we prepare to move toward a post human(e)istic psychology. This movement and action pivots on honorable deconstruction to build an alternative to supremacist ideologies in professional practice, including research, assessment, therapeutic care, scholarship, and “super”-vision. As we rebuild, we better position humanistic psychology (HP) to prepare for and respond to a post-humanistic world, while addressing the existential crises of sustainability, ecology, global warming, our movement away from speciesism and the rising of the post-human age of machines. With this, we are tasked to engage ourselves as practitioners and public scholars in the world and on the edge of situated values (humanistic, existential, transpersonal, spiritual) of our tradition. Calling upon Cornell West’s “organic intellectual,” we are prepared to dive into interprofessional and interdisciplinary circles and events that this conference honors.

Pre-recorded presentations will be available on demand throughout the conference and for 3 months thereafter. Presenters include: Irene R. Siegel, Silvio Machado, Jonathan D. Raskin, Brittany Trauthwein, Micah Ingle, Susan G. Goldberg, Jamal Ghazi, David Tomaselli, Latha Poonamallee, and many more!
