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.
