The transpersonal engagement in psychotherapy

This paper presents the identity of the transpersonal psychotherapies (P.T) in what they essentially and specifically have. The analysis is justified because transpersonal psychology has provoked conceptual and therapeutic restructuring of the paradigm. The major objective of PT is making the human being total through the deliberate approach of the spiritual dimension, based on an extensive map of the human psyche and fructifying the healing potential of the amplified states of consciousness. The PT conceptions about sickness and health are analyzed, as well as the multilevel causes (biographical or trans-biographical) of different diseases and the pathogenic character of the physical trauma. Furthermore, a theme of great interest for psychiatry is addressed, the theme of spiritual emergencies. The paper will reflect on some postulate of PT, on the necessary abilities of a transpersonal therapist, and also on the three types of psychotherapies, proposed by J. Rowan (1992) according to their access to the transpersonal.
