Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs
Abraham Harold Maslow (April 1, 1908 – June 8, 1970) was an American psychologist who was best known for creating Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory of psychological health.
He stressed the importance of focusing on the positive qualities in people, as opposed to treating them as a “bag of symptoms.”
“You will either step forward into growth or you will step back into safety.”
