Wilfred Bastiani is a Dutch Psychologist/Philosopher ~ born in Zwolle the Netherlands in 1962 ~ who has made an attempt to reintroduce the term "Psychosophy", Psychosophy emerges out of some modular studies via the Stanford University ~ California.
Based on his theories Irvin Yalom (world's first Psychosopher) claimed that Psychology should use and apply more concepts of Philosophy, Wilfred Bastiani does this as well and also in the opposite way and tries the implement more Psychology into the fields of Philosophy, to help the philosopher ~ so he says ~ in finding more integrated and more holistic answers. Therefore he introduced Henri Bergson to these proceedings. Henri Bergson who was a Biologist, a Neurologist, Psychologist and Philosopher and contributed lots of important values to these fields including the field of HighGiftedness and HighSensitivity.
A basis of more than 30 years of experience within operational youth Pedagogy & Education and based upon all research within the fields as mentioned above Wilfred Bastiani revisited the "Diagnostic Statistical Manual" ~ or DSM and created a more sophisticated version of the "High-Gifted-Ness"-concept according to Kazimiertz Dabrowski's "5 dimensions of intelligence".
Being a strong intuitive Psychosopher he profiles candidates best during life confrontations. The way of profiling in this way mostly provides a strong indication of one’s character, thinking style and decision making processes. This results into best individual programs when necessary. Possible therapies are configurated to discover one’s own identity and increase consciousness. Most of all candidates appear to be capable to create self-reliance themselves. This implies that almost anyone can heal itself. Wilfred Bastiani is the ultimate strength during these processes.
Finally he wants to empower the renaissance of the term Psychosophy by calling himself a Psycho~Sopher nowadays and by entitling 1 of his former books with the name "Psycho~Sophy". Furthermore by integrating Psychosophy in the books "Debt & Penance", the manual "integral holistic metapraxis" about a moderation of DSM iv-v that all are gathered in his third Trio~Scopy "emergence of integrity" together with the book. "My~KeY". The latest books "the Theory is the Theater of the Mind" ~ a quote of David Bohm ~ and his autobiography "exclusion of a monad" and the Dutch book "Heel-Begaafd" telling about his "HighGifted"-experiences within the society and the Psychiatry during his own psychoses and depressions.
