Existential & Humanistic Psychology Links

Please note that I do not engage in link exchanges as I simply do not have time review sites to consider adding them. Please do not contact me with requests to exchange links. Anyone is welcome to link to any pages on this website without inquiring for permission.

Existential Therapy by Louis Hoffman, PhD
This website is a bit outdated with a few glitches, but I still have many people tell me they find it quite useful. It was created on a program I no longer have access to so I cannot do minor updates and I have not had time to do a major update of it yet. As I have had a number of people tell me that this is what first introduced them to existential psychology and helped them develop their initial interest in it, I decided to keep the website active until I can find time to complete the major update.

There are many problems, but I think there is a solution to all these problems; it’s just one, and it’s education.
