Call for Proposals

You are invited to submit a workshop proposal or paper for the 2019 Transactional Analysis Conference at the Raleigh Marriott City Center July 31 – August 3, 2019, in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA.

Submissions are due by January 31, 2019.

The Conference

Promoting Equality and OK-ness: Healing the Divisions in Our World is a Transactional Analysis Conference, co-sponsored by the Southeast Institute for Group and Family Therapy, International Transactional Analysis Association, and the USA Transactional Analysis Association. This conference celebrates 50 years of working for racial, economic, and social justice at Southeast Institute for Group and Family Therapy. Our present cultural moment calls for narratives of inclusion and equity, for fostering human dignity and worth, and for cooperation among diverse communities and individuals as antidotes for narratives of competition and exclusion. Historically, TA’s founder Eric Berne believed that all people have worth, value, and dignity, and the capacity to think for themselves. These tenets remain uniquely suited to respond to this moment–with individuals, groups, and communities. We seek advanced proposals from a diverse group of presenters within and across the four fields of TA application: Psychotherapy, Counseling, Education, and Organizations, as well as other relevant approaches.


We welcome proposals from TA professionals as well as from practitioners and teachers of other approaches to human communication, change, and health. Selection will be based on completeness of the proposal, relevance to the theme and our audience, qualification for Continuing Education credit, and advancement of TA theory and practice. Consistent with principles of diversity and inclusion, proposals of 1.5 hours and 3 hours will be considered for workshops, papers will be 45 minutes. Proposals based on current research, integration of TA with other disciplines, professional ethics, and innovative approaches, are invited.
