IJTARP publishes high-quality empirical research using any scientific paradigm across the full range of TA applications. It also promotes research comparing TA and other models and non-TA research that has significant implications for TA theory or practice. It also publishes papers on the practice and theoretical underpinnings of TA.
Transactional Analysis is a social psychology, a theory of human personality and a systematic approach for growth and personal change of individuals, groups and organisations. In the past, the non-therapy applications of TA were known as Special Fields but the term DTA was adopted as this captures the emphasis on development rather than the psychotherapeutic focus on cure. It is therefore of relevance to educators, consultants, trainers, facilitators, teachers, coaches, mentors, counsellors, mediators, social workers, parents, youth workers, advisors, HR professionals, managers, executives – and all who help to develop others .
