Together the ITAA and EATA would like to provide an online space for members to meet and talk about experiences, challenges and needs with a possible aim being to share strategies and options that have been successful to supportive to you and others at this time.

This two- hour meeting will be held on Friday, 24th of April with a maximum of 100 participants, timings will be:

  • 09.00 am – 11.00 am Berlin time
  • 12.30 pm – 02.30 pm Indian time

Leonard Campos is being honored with the 2020 Robert and Mary Goulding Social Justice Award for his years of applying redecision therapy principles and methods in his activism related to social responsibility and justice. The nomination statements in support of his award recalled how Leonard has worked on social justice issues all of his professional life through promoting equality and fair treatment of people of differences.

He has been a regular presenter on social justice and peacemaking and has applied transactional analysis and redecision theory in his work. He has modeled cooperative and collaborative behaviors as he advocated for inclusion and diversity. They acknowledged Leonard’s role as the lead founder of Transactional Analysts for Social Responsibility and the ways he has combined TA and advocacy at the local community level as well as on a wider national and international level.

They cited his many publications and other awards and how his TAJ publications on cultural scripting, war, and peace are strong indicators of his global concern as well as his evolving and enduring commitment to using transactional analysis for social justice. (Leonard’s acceptance speech will be published in an upcoming issue of The Script.) Nominators: Lucy Freedman, Felipe Garcia, Janice Dowson, and Dianne Maki-Sethi.
