Integral Therapy with Kai-Lin Yang
Integral therapists look at how clients suffer both psychologically and somatically. Clinical symptoms are important references to them, as they are observable manifestations of the client’s suffering. However, integral therapists are mostly interested in the real issues that are hidden behind the symptoms. As I mentioned above, the hidden “root” issues are the cause of clients’ suffering.
Integral therapists understand that in order to terminate clients’ suffering, they need to find out what the clients’ real issues are. In integral therapy, therapists invite clients to co-investigate their psychological difficulties and to locate the cause of their suffering. Once the real issues emerge, integral therapists assist clients to deal with their issues by enhancing their psychological strength. They use depth therapy such as gestalt therapy and transpersonal therapy to allow clients to experience and develop their inner power. When clients progressively experience their psychological strength, their issues become less threatening and clients develop into stronger psychological beings. They begin to feel more powerful than their issues/problems. Consequently, the symptoms will naturally lessen or diminish in the process of integral therapy. The recurrence of psychological difficulties will be reduced since future similar issues cannot threaten them anymore.
In short, through integral therapy clients gain the opportunity to access their inner potential and to grow towards their ideal self.
