Examples of "psychosynthesis"
In his major book, "Psychosynthesis: A Collection of Basic Writings" (1965), Assagioli writes of three aims of psychosynthesis:
In "Psychosomatic Medicine and Bio-psychosynthesis", Assagioli states that the principal aims and tasks of psychosynthesis are:
The stages of Psychosynthesis may be tabulated as follows:
Assagioli presents the two major theoretical models in his seminal book, "Psychosynthesis", models that have remained fundamental to psychosynthesis theory and practice through the years. These two models are 1) a diagram and description of the human person, and the other 2) a stage theory of the process of psychosynthesis (see below).
He also highlighted the differences between Jung's work and Psychosynthesis:
Psychosynthesis "has always been on the fringes of the 'official' therapy world" and it "is only recently that the concepts and methods of psychoanalysis and group analysis have been introduced into the training and practice of psychosynthesis psychotherapy".
The Psychosynthesis & Education Trust center in Britain was founded by Assagioli in 1965, and is currently being run by President Lady Diana Whitmore. The Trust is affiliated with Humanistic and Integrative Psychology Section of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and European Association for Psychotherapy (EAP), and is a founding member of the European Federation of Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy (EFPP). At present time, the group consists of a large group of Psychosynthesis practitioners who mediate students. The Trust offers workshops, courses, and a newsletter, to anyone who is interested in learning more about Psychosynthesis.
Roberto Assagioli developed his approach of Psychosynthesis, an original approach to psychology.
The Institute of Psychosynthesis, London, was formed by Joan and Roger Evans in 1974 as a training organisation with Roberto Assagioli's support. It is a member organisation of UKCP's Humanistic and Integrative Psychology Section where its Psychotherapists and Therapeutic Counsellors as well as Supervisors are accredited. The Institute of Psychosynthesis currently offers an MA in Psychosynthesis and has a full coaching and leadership MA programme.
Psychosynthesis is an approach to psychology that was developed by Italian psychiatrist, Roberto Assagioli. He compared psychosynthesis to the prevailing thinking of the day, contrasting psychosynthesis for example with existential psychology, but unlike the latter considered loneliness not to be "either ultimate or essential". Assagioli asserted that "the direct experience of the self, of pure "self-awareness"... – is true." Spiritual goals of "self-realization" and the "interindividual psychosynthesis" – of 'social integration...the harmonious integration of the individual into ever larger groups up to the "one humanity"' – were central to Assagioli's theory. Psychosynthesis was not intended to be a school of thought or an exclusive method but many conferences and publications had it as a central theme and centres were formed in Italy and the United States in the 1960s.
Psychosynthesis has applied it to those in whom spiritual ambition exceeds their personality limits, leading to a backlash.
The Association for the Advancement of Psychosynthesis (AAP) was formed in August 1995, as a non-profit organization in the United States, with approximately two-hundred members across the country. Members of the AAP run programs, workshops, and conferences to discuss Assagioli and Psychosynthesis, and publish a newsletter to discuss new topics related to the field.
In the December 1974 issue of "Psychology Today", Assagioli was interviewed by Sam Keen, in which Assagioli discussed the differences between Freudian psychoanalysis and Psychosynthesis:
Roberto Assagioli, founder of Psychosynthesis, was a lecturer at School of Spiritual Research. He continued a close association with Bailey during the 1930s; some of his writings were published in Bailey's magazine "The Beacon"; and he was a trustee of Bailey's organization, the Lucis Trust. He had developed his approach to psychology, called Psychosynthesis, beginning in 1910; his methods were later influenced by some elements of Bailey's work. However, authors John Firman and Ann Gila write that Assagioli kept what he referred to as a "wall of silence" between the areas of psychosynthesis and religion or metaphysics, insisting that they not be confused with each other.
For Assagioli, 'Human healing and growth that involves work with either the middle or the lower unconscious is known as "personal psychosynthesis" '.
Since Assagioli’s death in the early 1970s, Psychosynthesis has continued to be embraced as a comprehensive psychological approach for finding inner peace and harmony.

Assagioli is famous for developing and founding the science of Psychosynthesis, a spiritual and holistic approach to psychology that had developed from psychoanalysis. He was largely inspired by Freud’s idea of the repressed mind and Jung’s theories of the collective unconscious. Trained in psychoanalysis but unsatisfied by what he regarded as its incompleteness as a whole, Assagioli felt that love, wisdom, creativity, and will all were important components that should be included in psychoanalysis. Assagioli’s earliest development of Psychosynthesis started in 1911, when he began his formal education in psychology. He continued his work on Psychosynthesis right up until his death. Freud and Assagioli were known to have corresponded, although they never had the chance to meet. Assagioli said, "Psychosynthesis presupposes psychoanalysis, or rather, includes it as a first and necessary stage."
Writing about the model of the person presented above, Assagioli states that it is a "structural, static, almost 'anatomical' representation of our inner constitution, while it leaves out its dynamic aspect, which is the most important and essential one". Thus he follows this model immediately with a stage theory outlining the process of psychosynthesis. This scheme can be called the "stages of psychosynthesis", and is presented here.
In the December 1974 issue of "Psychology Today", Assagioli was interviewed by Sam Keen and was asked to comment on the limits of psychosynthesis. He answered paradoxically: "The limit of psychosynthesis is that it has no limits. It is too extensive, too comprehensive. Its weakness is that it accepts too much. It sees too many sides at the same time and that is a drawback."
