Guide to Integral Psychotherapy, A

Complexity, Integration, and Spirituality in Practice

A therapist's guide to psychotherapy, spirituality, and self-development. This book provides a practical introduction to Integral Psychotherapy, which positions itself as the most comprehensive approach to psychotherapy yet offered. Grounded in the work of theoretical psychologist and philosopher Ken Wilber, it organizes the key insights and interventions of pharmacological, psychodynamic, behavioral, cognitive, humanistic, existential, feminist, multicultural, somatic, and transpersonal approaches to psychotherapy. The Integral approach does not attempt to unify these diverse approaches, but rather takes a metatheoretical perspective, giving general guidelines for which is most appropriate in a wide range of clinical situations. It also strongly emphasizes the therapist’s own personal development, under the premise that the depth and complexity of the human psyche must be understood first within the self if it is to be understood fully in others. This essential text is for therapists and others drawn to holistic approaches to psychotherapy, and serves as a theoretical ground and precise guide for those interested in taking an Integral approach to therapeutic practice.

Integral Education

New Directions for Higher Learning

Leading researchers and practitioners explore the frontiers of education from an integral perspective. The educational challenges being faced today are driving us toward a new step in the evolution of educational theory and practice. Educators are called to go beyond simply presenting alternatives, to integrating the best of mainstream and alternative approaches and taking them to the next level. Integral Education accomplishes this by bringing together leading researchers and practitioners from higher education who are actively exploring the frontiers of education from an integral perspective. It presents an overview of the emerging landscape of integral education from a variety of theoretical and applied perspectives. Key characteristics of integral education include: exploring multiple perspectives, employing different pedagogical techniques (e.g., reflective, dialogical, empirical), combining conceptual rigor with embodied experience, drawing on developmental psychology, and cultivating a reflective and transformative space for students and teachers alike. Integral Education provides the most comprehensive synopsis of this exciting new approach and serves as a valuable resource for any integral effort within education.

Integral Psychotherapy

Inside Out/Outside In

Introduces integral psychotherapy to scholars, practicing psychotherapists, and general readers. In Integral Psychotherapy, self-help meets rigorous scholarship. Integral Psychotherapy is a dynamic framework for understanding the mind and uniting spirituality and psychotherapy. Authors Elliott Ingersoll and David M. Zeitler use Ken Wilber’s Integral Model to guide readers through a startling new view of psychotherapy as a spiritual journey of self-discovery. This is the first book that grounds the Integral approach in mainstream research while showing how Integral Psychotherapy treats body, mind, and spirit, and it offers an accurate history of many psychological ideas (some mistaken) prevalent in our society. Integral Psychotherapy debunks the fads and fashions of self-help gurus while mapping terrain readers can use to bring their lives into focus. With humor and compassion the authors show that the life of the mind is complex and complexity is our friend.

Integral Theory in Action

Applied, Theoretical, and Constructive Perspectives on the AQAL Model

Leading scholar-practitioners discuss the strengths, limits, and potential of Integral Theory and the AQAL model. In a world as complex as ours, an integral approach is needed to help sort through a dynamic landscape and respond effectively to individual and collective challenges. Integral Theory in Action provides the first multi-authored overview of such an approach. Integral Theory is the result of 30 years of research and is being applied in over 35 distinct disciplines. This volume brings together two dozen leading scholar-practitioners who are actively applying integral principles and who address a range of issues from an integral perspective including: climate change, embodiment, feminist aesthetics, community discourse, treatment of depression, developmental theory, and global ethics. The strengths, limitations, and potential of Integral Theory and Ken Wilber’s AQAL model are weighed by each contributor. This collection pushes the field of Integral Theory in new ways and new directions, and provides a comprehensive overview that makes it an invaluable resource for any integral effort.
