Psychology at Meridian: An Integral Vision
Enacting an integral vision, psychology at Meridian integrates several diversified orientations to psychology that have emerged during the mid- to latter part of the twentieth century, including:
- Depth Psychology
- Humanistic Psychology
- Transpersonal Psychology
- Somatic Psychology
- Spiritual Psychology
- Energy Psychology
Psychology at Meridian integrates three distinct dimensions of psychology: academic dicipline, vocation and profession.
Psychology at Meridian seeks to reclaim the soul as the primary concern of psychology, accessing soul as it is known to us through the imagination.
Psychology at Meridian draws on and integrates numerous knowledge domains that provide significant psychological knowledge, but that are not a recognized part of the conventional discipline and profession of psychology.
