Abstract

Humanistic psychology’s ontological and historical mission has been to assist people in pursuing their fullest potential. Yet the literature has shown that healthy human growth and development are severely constrained by economic injustice and its socioeconomic discourses and structures. Humanistic psychology and professional counseling have remained largely silent on issues of classism ignoring the economic realities of poverty on human potential. The purpose of the article is to help restore classism to the foreground of humanist priorities and concerns. Practical strategies to address economic injustices will be discussed. © 2016, © The Author(s) 2016.
