Psychology | Transpersonal Psychology
Recent developments in the field of psychology include the Humanistic and Transpersonal Movements. Humanistic and transpersonal psychologists include aspects of the other modes of traditional therapy that have developed over the past one hundred years, influenced by psychoanalysis, behaviorism, and existentialism. Each in its time was at the frontier and each formed the foundation for new methods and ideologies as research, understanding and knowledge opened new views of human consciousness. Transpersonal psychology, along with humanistic psychology, moves through the barriers of dogmatism and imposed structure toward a view of consciousness and human experience that expands the perspectives of the previous modalities. Ken Wilber's books present a very comprehensive study of how each mode of psychology serves particular purposes.
