Hi Linda, I think the intergrated theory of psychology might be the new name of the 'eclectic approach' of yesteryear; although you wouldn't want to apply that name on a test. I think the answer to your question will be found in a good grad level 'counseling' psychology text. Best, David

WMM Marston published 'Integrative Psychology: A Study of Unit Response' in 1931. It was an attempt to unify psychology by proposing new elementary units of mind & behaviour. The notion of integration goes back to C Sherrington's (1904) attempts to integrate mind and body. See Roger Smith's paper in 'Psychology in Britain: Historical Essays and Personal reflections' (BPS Books, 2001).
