Here is my research proposal for my dissertation. 


I’ve attached two version one is with some theory and background. The other is pretty much just a “recipe card” of what I’m proposing to do.


All comments and discussion and feedback are welcome.

What can I say other than excellent, that I hope your research proposal is accepted, that I will be excited to follow your work, and that if you think of any ways in which I might be able to support you in this if I am able to I will be glad to.

Reading through what you have written makes me realise that to get to what is envisioned is such a huge thing: the integral framework being taught in every medical school, university and collage, with everyone from social workers, to herbalists, to spiritual teachers, to doctors, to researchers being taught it. A need to go through every stage from marketing and patient management, to diagnosis and assessment, to treatment, and to make each integral. Developing an integral consultation and integral assessment would be a huge speciality area in and of itself. It would be a massive change, the adoption of an overriding framework that while very inclusive, in some ways does require conformation. It would be something that many people would be unfamiliar with and is likely to be disliked by the majority, both conventional and alternative: conventional because of having to accept other approaches (for example), alternative because of becoming limited in what can be claimed (some over-reach with claims, some may compare badly with other therapies) and some for being rejected (not every therapy in existence is likely to be worth keeping). But while therapists may on the whole not like it, I imagine patient satisfaction might increase dramatically overall!

Of course in something like this it is not about creating the finished thing, rather it is about taking the first steps (and your proposal sounds like it will be an excellent leap forward), and helping to strengthen a movement.
