Episode 188: Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Theory of Motivation

In this episode of our podcast about mental health, host Jackie Pack talks about Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs that dictates a person’s behavior and motivation.  We discuss the belief window that figuratively sits in front of our face and also dictates the views we have about ourselves and the world we live in.  If we are looking to change our behavior, it starts with changing the perspective that sits on this belief window.

TRANSCRIPT: Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Theory of Motivation

Hi everyone, welcome to Thanks for Sharing. I’m your host, Jackie Pack. Today we’re going to be talking about Maslow’s theory of motivation, and this theory of motivation Maslow says has five categories of human needs, and these needs dictate a person’s behavior. So this will help us understand a little bit more about human behavior and studying and understanding human behavior, which sometimes can be a little bit mind-boggling.
