The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology: An Orientation
As a major orientation in psychology, a transpersonal perspective connects contemporary educational, scientific, and clinical methods with personal, social, and spiritual understanding. It is concerned with full human awareness, the integration of psychological and spiritual experience, and the transcendence of self.
Since its founding the Journal has published sixty issues, including over three hundred articles by more than three hundred fifty authors.
Transpersonal psychology was first announced and defined with the publication of The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, in 1969. Guided by the work of psychologists Abraham Maslow, Anthony Sutich and colleagues, this new field was founded on a commitment to open-ended inquiry, experiential and empirical validation, and a values-oriented approach to human experience.
In 1972 the Association for Transpersonal Psychology was established to encourage individual and group learning, cooperation among disciplines, research in theory and application, and the dissemination of information about the field.
Today, the Journal and the Association bring these approaches and purposes to thousands of interested individuals. As established non-profit services, both JTP and ATP continue to extend the transpersonal perspective world-wide.
