Transpersonal psychiatry may be considered an application of the teachings of transpersonal psychology to medical matters. It is, therefore, closely allied to therapy which adopts a transpersonal perspective, a topic which has been written about by Boorstein (1980) and for which John Rowan has discussed different streams, such as the Jungian, psychosynthetic and neuro-linguistic approaches.
Additional recommended knowledge
However, since psychiatrists must have had medical training, transpersonal psychiatrists can be said to differ from transpersonal psychologists and psychotherapists by possession of a medical degree. It still seems likely, however, that many questions which confront transpersonal psychology in a clinical context will also be of interest to transpersonal psychiatrists.
