Because of the far-reaching implications of the human givens approach, many different fields now benefit from incorporating this important new shift in our understanding of human functioning (see, for example, the article Human givens and social work and others in the Resources section.)
HGI Sections can be set up by HGI members who share specialist skills, interests and employment, to pool information and resources, and promote the use of the human givens paradigm in their particular field.
Current HGI Sections include:
- The NHS Human Givens Interest Group
- The HGI Education Section
- Research – The HGI Practice Research Network
Sections currently under consideration include:
- Executive Coaching from the Human Givens
- Social Work
Any members wishing to apply to start a new section, or head up a section currently under consideration, please contact the HGI office with your ideas and details for consideration by the board.
