Currently, he serves as a consultant and teacher, and continues to write about existential psychotherapy.
In "The Search for Authenticity" (1965), Bugental summarized the postulates of Humanistic Psychology, often quoted by other theorists:
- Human beings cannot be reduced to components.
- Human beings have in them a uniquely human context.
- Human consciousness includes an awareness of oneself in the context of other people.
- Human beings have choices and responsibilities.
- Human beings are intentional, they seek meaning, value and creativity.
