The best description of Dr. Tyrrell Baker’s overall approach is Integrative Psychology.
Integrative Psychology emphasizes the interdependence of psychological, social, cultural, physical, and spiritual dynamics in human existence and functioning. Integrative Psychology considers humanity from a perspective of wholeness, health, and systems and combines groundbreaking science with traditional understandings of human growth, development, change, and adjustment over the lifespan.
Positive Psychology, which is an essential part of Integrative Psychology, emphasizes human efficacy, strengths, assets, and self-actualization potential rather than focusing on individual or group disease or dysfunction.
