An Introduction to Abraham H. Maslow’s A Theory Of Human Motivation

Abraham Maslow's A Theory of Human Motivation describes the hierarchy of human needs that individuals must meet before they can become self-actualized. A short video analyzes the process with the example of a woman who begins a comedy career in a new town, which requires her to meet her needs before she can become a successful comedian.
