“Psychosynthesis: Model of a Person”

Robert Assagioli proposed diagrams which basically represent the human person are
very essential part of the Psychosynthesis. The Applied Psychosynthesis is commonly used in the
process of Psychotherapy which helps the individual to improve his mental health and well-

of the individual itself and described by Assagioli as simple yet gives an almost “anatomical”

Unconscious. The Lower Conscious refers to the part or “realm” of the person which consists of
