Holistic development of the person means the integrated development of all the dimensions of the human person with the goal of leading the person to the optimum level and quality of life performance at whatever stage of the individual's personal history.
It is premised on the
fundamental concept of the human person as body-soul-spirit. It is an approach to personal development based on the concept of the human person as an integrated whole naturally connected with the whole of reality.
Personal development can be achieved in any of the different dimensions or aspects of the human person, like development in intellectual performance or physical performance, but holistic development involves the total dimension of the human person's individuality as well as fundamental relations.
Holistic development employs philosophical, spiritual and scientific principles in the development of the human person, not in a separate, fragmented way but in an integrated, unified approach.
