In Psychotherapy by Dr. Keith Witt

A Speculative Framework for the Practical Application of Integrally Informed Psychotherapy

Abstract Psychotherapy has benefited from Ken Wilber’s all-levels, all-lines contribution of a developmental perspective expanded through quadrants, states, and types. Humans grow on different lines through progressively expansive worldviews that shift and morph according to their own and others’ states of consciousness and types of people. Our experience can be lived, monitored, and affected variously from four quadrants and eight zones, according to Wilber. This article explores an integrally informed developmental engagement field theory, with practical suggestions for applying it to living, parenting, and psychotherapy.
