Transpersonal Psychotherapy

Transpersonal Psychotherapy

January 2000 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`This is an enriching book for readers interested in unconscious psychological processes and who have a predilection for psychotherapy which interfaces psychology, philosophy and spirituality' - Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

Transpersonal Psychotherapy recognizes levels of experience that take us beyond our usual sense of self, limited by the content of our personality. Whilst facilitating the emergence of self, it also actively encourages an exploration of transpersonal experience as an integral part of the individuation process.

The major work proves a thorough and accessible introduction for students of psychotherapy ad interested others.

The contents of this book are relevant for both undergraduate and postgraduate study into the Transpersonal approach. This would be a useful resource for those interested in, studying or teaching various approaches to counselling/psychotherapy. The specific techniques suggested in chapter 10 are well explained and would be easily integrated into professional practice.
