Abstract

This paper appeared originally in Portuguese as: Potência da Análise Transacional nos sistemas da pessoa após Mentoria Integrativa Relacional. Revista Brasileira de Análise Transacional, 2021 (https://unat.org.br/portal/rebat-2021.php) and is reproduced here by kind permission of UNAT-BRASIL - União Nacional de Analistas Transacionais – Brasil.


To match the format of IJTARP, we have provided an alternative Abstract and moved the previous paragraph to become part of the Introduction to this article


The authors demonstrate through narrative analysis how potent lessons from TA are learned, applied and retained by those receiving relational integrative mentoring. A full account is provided of how transactional analysis is incorporated into such mentoring, including details of specific transactional analysis concepts and how they are used. Research results indicate how mentees particularly value transactional analysis as a language, as well as the usefulness of concepts including ego states, transactions, emotions, psychological games and contracts. The learning by the mentees is demonstrated as applicable to families as well as within the organisational context in which they mentoring was provided. They conclude that the research has demonstrated relational integrative mentoring as a sustainable and significant development programme.
