THE HOLISTIC APPROACH
A holistic view takes into account all of the aspects of the being, physical, mental, emotional, familial, social, cultural and spiritual recognizing that all of these factors have an influence on the general state and wellbeing of that person.
Holism is a doctrine or a point of view in which one considers individual phenomena as totalities.
Holism is a concept that can be used to explain a phenomenon as being an invisible whole, the simple sum of the parts do not suffice to explain the phenomenon. As a result holistic ideas find themselves in opposition to those of reductionism which tends to explain the phenomenon by dividing it into parts.
