Humanistic approach to learning is a theory that is learner centered. It puts emphasis on encouraging learners to develop an interest towards educating themselves. It includes the observation of the behaviour learners and the outcome of the behaviour. However, Barrett states that this observation yields learning and learning does not include a change in behaviour. Abraham Maslow is regarded as the father of Humanistic Psychology. He emphasises experiences in the study of human behaviour and learning.
