Who doesn’t like Abraham Maslow? I know this is taking most of you back to a 101 class of some sort – one of those soft sciences most likely: Criminal Law, Psychology, Sociology, etc. But seriously – who wouldn’t love this face?
Something you all probably know about him is that he’s most famous for his “Hierarchy of Needs”. Boy, I love this gem of psycho-social theory. I don’t know if Maslow understood how much potential that little pyramid had for healing. When I worked with young people, it featured prominently in my one-to-one work with them; when I managed, it was always on the wall in the office.
