PSYCHOSYNTHESIS: AN ECO-SOMA-SOCIAL-PSYCHO-SPIRITUAL MODEL FOR WORKING WITH GROWTH, TRANSFORMATION, CRISES & TRAUMA
The word holistic is used frequently within the helping professions, yet on deeper exploration; spiritual levels of consciousness have largely been neglected. Up until recently, spirituality has not been seen as legitimate in many academic and scientific fields and has rarely been given space in psychology, social work, coaching, counselling and psychotherapy training (F. Gale, 2007).
Considering global emergencies such as Coronavirus, financial and environmental crises, war torn countries and displaced peoples, the widening gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian’s health and well-being, rising levels of addiction to the internet, food, drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex and shopping, as well as a growing sense of disconnection from self and others – neglecting to understand and include a spiritual context continues to have serious consequences for individuals, communities and the whole. (Reference: Psychosynthesis: A Psychology with a Soul)
EXPLORING THE SPIRITUAL DIMENSION OF CONSCIOUSNESS IS LINKED WITH BETTER OUTCOMES
Spirituality in this context is often used to describe the deeper essence of who we are, the innate part of us that continuously calls us towards growth and wholeness. This is the spiritual Self, also known as the deeper or higher Self (capital S in psychosynthesis). The Self is made up of will and consciousness – it is our life force. When connected to our deeper essence, it provides us with renewed vitality, a way of understanding and finding value, meaning and purpose in life.
Dr. Roberto Assagioli MD, the founder of Psychosynthesis was a neurologist and the first psychoanalyst in Italy. Although heavily influenced by eastern and western spirituality, and ahead of the times in terms of including mindfulness and spirituality alongside analysis, he was adamant that Psychosynthesis was a respectable scientific theory.
According to empirical research by MU College of Arts & Science, exploring spirituality is linked with better health outcomes. Dan Cohen believes that spirituality not only fosters better mental health but may help our relationships by decreasing self-centredness and increasing our sense of connectedness and belonging to a larger whole.
The clinical psychology program at Columbia University is currently experimenting with integrating psychotherapy and spirituality in ways rarely seen at a major research university. Sofia University in California has taught this for some time, Psychosynthesis being one of the modalities.
At the 2022 Australian Childhood Trauma Conference, Dr Dan Siegel repeatedly mentioned the need to be working with soul & spirituality in relation to trauma and healing.
