Greek term or phrase: ψυχοσωματικές δυνατότητες
Καθ’ όλη τη διάρκεια της ανάπτυξης της προσωπικότητας, πραγματοποιούνται προοδευτικές μεταβολές. Αυτές έχουν ως αποτέλεσμα την μετατροπή και μεταδόμηση των ψυχοσωματικών δυνατοτήτων, που παρουσιάζονται σε κάθε στάδιο καλύτερα οργανωμένες. Η προσωπικότητα είναι λοιπόν προϊόν της ανάπτυξής της, η οποία στην ιδανική περίπτωση έχει μια κατάληξη. Και όταν μιλάμε για κατάληξη, δεν εννοούμε τον τερματισμό στην ανάπτυξη της προσωπικότητας, αλλά μιλάμε για το προϊόν αυτής της σύνθεσης το οποίο αποτελεί μια νέα δομή, και έχει ως αποτέλεσμα τη δυναμική εξέλιξη του ατόμου. Η σύνθεση αυτή αποτελεί το μέσον για την επιβίωσή του.

agree  Kyriacos Georghiou: definitely 'capabilities'

  -> Thank you, Kyriaco. [I have a long, urgent translation of my own to do, so I did not read the context carefully but merely provided an answer quickly so that I could get back to my translation].

neutral  Dylan Edwards: The word 'psychosomatic', in my experience, is associated mainly with psychosomatic disorders. Perhaps a pair of adjectives would work better in English: 'mental and physical', 'psychological and physical' or 'mental and somatic'.

  -> Noted. Thank you.

neutral  Theodoros Karyotis: "psychosomatic" in English has a very limited field of application, unlike its cognate "ψυχοσωματικό" in Greek.
