"...Psychosynthesis can be indicated primarily as a general attitude of, and striving towards integration, and synthesis in all fields, but particularly in those of self realization, therapy, interpersonal and social (group) relations and integration... It might be called a 'movement', a 'trend' and a 'goal'. There is no orthodoxy in psychosynthesis and no one, beginning with myself should be considered as its exclusive representative... The external pattern of the relationship between the Foundations, Institutes and Centers of Psychosynthesis should not be that of a 'solar system' but that of a 'constellation'."
Dr Roberto Assagioli
Psychosynthesis training is a process of self-development, self-discovery and answering a vocational call to help others.
The professional training begins with personal exploration, gaining self-knowledge and building insight into psychospiritual development. This personal exploration provides the foundation to work with others supporting them with their healing and growth. Training is usually 4-5 years.
Each training centre will have its own approach to the professional training depending on their country’s professional bodies and regulations. Trainings can be accredited by professional bodies such as UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) or FF2P (Fédération Française de Psychothérapie et Psychanalyse). Some training centres have partnerships with universities to offer an academic award.
In Italy, SIPT (Societa Italiana di Psicosintesi Terapeutica) has been officially accredited by the Italian Government since 1994 and the Scuola di Psicoterapia Psicosintetica has official university status.
