Abstract

The spectrum of psychology includes various approaches--behavioral, psychoanalytic, humanistic, existential, transpersonal, systems, and combinations of these major divisions. Each psychology has its own specialized approach to human beings; each focuses on some profile of the human phenomenon. For example, psychoanalysis concentrates on the unconscious, whereas humanistic psychology is concerned about conscious experience. As a consequence of these specializations, one psychological perspective is differentiated from another, and may even appear to contradict it, for instance, the objective observable orientation of behavioral psychology, though both consider human beings.
