The Psychologies and the Humanization of Communication.
Litvin, Joel
Theoretical and methodological developments in the psychologies have had an effect on the direction of research and training in speech. To continue to benefit from association with the psychologies, speech teachers would do well to familiarize themselves with the philosophy-psychology of the humanistic movement. The humanistic approach proceeds from the concept that there are certain universal qualities which characterize man and prove his uniqueness among all species. Research and training that considers the impact of humanistic variables on communication results may significantly contribute to a humanizing of the field of speech and to an understanding of the essentially human nature of man as a communicator.
