What is Developmental Transactional Analysis
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 .
The aims of the IDTA are to:
Establish and monitor ethics and professional practices related to developmental TA
Liaise with appropriate professional bodies to stimulate, initiate and monitor standards of training and supervision being offered to students of developmental TA and of people working with the application of developmental TA
Provide support and encouragement to meet the needs of practitioners and those in training who are involved in developing individuals, groups, organisations and institutions using developmental TA
Promote ongoing research into developmental TA
Provide a forum for those interested in ethical and professional applications of developmental TA
Organise conferences and events so that developmental TA is disseminated and developed
Stimulate and monitor continuous professional development of its members
