A literature review is included and the development of the questionnaire through a pre-test option with 226 subjects is described. The results of statistical analyses are described and the final questionnaire, in English and in Chinese, is included as appendices.</em></p> 2021-12-31T04:38:21-05:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ijtarp.org/article/view/22379 Cultural Parent and Learning in the Knowledge Society: A Survey with Students of Primary Education 2022-01-04T06:25:09-05:00 Cesare Fregola cesare.fregola@uniroma3.it <p><em>This article describes a research study involving 132 students on a Primary Education Sciences degree course at Roma Tre University. A complexity paradigm was employed for the research, which used group activities to design a questionnaire that was subsequently analysed to provide 8 different perspectives. The underlying theoretical perspective involved investigation of the applicability of the transactional analysis concept of Cultural Parent (and the associated concepts of Frame of Reference, Script and Ego States) as a way of understanding how changes are needed in educational processes to reflect how family, school and societal cultures have changed, with particular reference to Generation App and the increasing impact of technology on virtual spaces, and the need to reflect cultural diversity.</em></p> 2021-12-31T04:34:28-05:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://ijtarp.org/article/view/22377 Deconfusion of the Child ego state - An examination of the main contributions and how redecision adds to the literature 2022-01-04T06:25:09-05:00 Tony White agbw@bigpond.com <p><em>This paper examines some of the main writings about deconfusion of the Child in the transactional analysis literature. It seeks to show how each approach defines the goals of deconfusion and the methods by which deconfusion is obtained. In doing this it clarifies the three methods which Berne proposed could be used for such deconfusion. It also attempts to show how redecision therapy adds to the literature on the topic, which to the writer's knowledge has not been done before.</em></p> 2021-12-31T00:00:00-05:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
