Q&A: What is the difference between cognitive and psychodynamic psychology and humanistic psychology?
Question by : What is the difference between cognitive and psychodynamic psychology and humanistic psychology?
I’m having a little bit of trouble seeing the difference between these. I’m quite familiar with humanism, so I’m using that as my base to compare.
I would love it if someone could help me out.
Thanks heaps in advance!
