Psychotherapy has beneﬁted from Ken Wilber’s all-levels, all-lines contribution of a developmental perspective expanded through quadrants, states, and types. Humans grow on diﬀerent lines through progressively expansive worldviews that shift and morph according to their own and others’ states of consciousness and types of people. This article explores how social engagement is central to human functioning and development, and how it potentially provides agentic access to intersubjective and interobjective energy ﬁelds. An integrally informed developmental engagement ﬁeld theory is described, with practical suggestions for applying it to living, parenting, and psycho- therapy. The article concludes with a lifespan case study that embodies the presented research.
