Assignment: The Family Tree for Humanistic

For this assignment, build a “family tree” for humanistic and positive psychology, showing their connections and divergences from their origins in social and developmental psychology to their current contentious relationship. The “family tree” may be organized in terms of the key individuals whose work laid the foundation for the two disciplines today, or a combination of key individuals and their approaches, or through the various psychological concepts to which the two disciplines have been applied. “Cousins” and unexpected ancestors such as transpersonal psychology and B. F. Skinner, respectively, may be included. Several free sources of genograms (family tree templates) are available online and may be used. The presentation of the genogram should be followed with 2-3 pages of explanation and description of your approach. Citations do not need to be included in the genogram itself but should be included in the text after the image.

Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

 

Length: 3-4 pages, not including title and reference pages, but including genogram.
