Abstract

This article responds to the 'call to action' by emphasizing the importance of humanistic psychology 'articulating' with the mainstream institutions of society to exert its effect. The concept of 'articulation' is outlined and its relevance explored in relation to universities, professional associations, and purchasers, with examples drawn from work in Britain where person-centered therapy predominates over all other disciplines.
