Human Givens

Human Givens & Psychological Well-being

A Framework for a Fulfilled Life

Our emotional needs and innate resources are the human givens. These emotional needs and innate resources are  are givens of our human nature. They are emotional needs that we are all born with, and fortunately most of us are also born with the innate resources to help us get those emotional needs met, but we need to use our innate resources correctly to do so.

Decades of health and social research have revealed that these emotional needs are vital if we are to achieve a good sense of  psychological well-being and feel fulfilled in our lives. Our innate resources are our internal guidance system and factors such as stress, anxiety or trauma can inhibit us from using those resources correctly.
