Most of the quoted principles and elements of General Systems Theory and related subjects are from this book. On researching the topic of General Systems Theory GST I quite quickly came to realise that there are many elements that form important laws and principles regarding systems. Likewise, many people have differing views on exactly which laws and principles are the essential ones.
It is the different views, and different models of systems that allow General Systems Theory and Psychosynthesis to sit well together. It has been suggested by the likes of Molly Young Brown that Psychosynthesis could be seen as the Systems model of Psychology.
Also, Psychosynthesis has developed into divergent expressions from its early formulation by Roberto Assagioli. Along the way various people have added components of Jungian psychology, Gestalt concepts and practices, and various teachings on co-dependence.
As such, Psychosynthesis shows itself to be a highly adaptive system, the core elements remaining, while new ideas and processes being added as required.
General Systems Theory, and Systems Thinking has developed and evolved over time, tracing common ideas and concepts back to early philosophies.
In more modern times, Operational Research struck me as an important forerunner to General Systems Theory.
Operational Research can be summed up in three main elements my comments follow each point: It is not necessary to understand everything, rather to have it under control.
Ask what happens instead of why. This fits in extremely well with Psychosynthesis therapy. As a therapist, this principle is even more relevant. We do not need to understand everything about a client.
Asking why is something that keeps us in our thinking space and cut off from our emotions and learning to actually understand.
I will expand on this a little more latter when I discuss General Systems Theory and its similarities to Psychosynthesis with regard to looking at the relationship between things.
With regards to having things under control, Psychosynthesis, through the process of identification and dis-identification allows a person to gain more control of their life.
It is considered that whatever we identify with we are control by, and whatever we can dis-identify with we can control. By the process of identification and dis-identification we can begin to find out what is happening, gain some understandings, and achieve a certain amount of control in our lives.Psychosynthesis ** Inability to maintain or focus attention.
