Humanism psychology is a psychological trend of thoughts which rose in America in 1950s and 1960s, with Maslow and Rogers as its main representatives. In 1960s, they applied the humanism psychological theory to the education field, and then formed the new humanism teaching theory, and it had a profound effect on the education reform movement, also it gave a new inspiration to the educators.
