December 1, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Scott Barry Kaufman will present his research on self-actualization, revising Maslow’s famous “hierarchy of needs” for the 21st century. He will argue that the revised hierarchy of needs provides a useful framework for what he calls “self-actualization coaching.” He will review each of the needs and discuss how a deep integration of them all is necessary for becoming a whole person and experiencing transcendence in one’s daily life.
