The Transpersonal Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society notes that Transpersonal Psychology addresses the spiritual nature of humankind. It is a branch of psychology because unlike religion and theology, its interest is driven by the study of mind and behavior. As such: Transpersonal Psychology seeks to integrate non-scientific spiritual insights with observations and models associated with the rigorous methodological approach of psychological science.
The International Journal of Transpersonal Studies (IJTS) is one of the most established peer-reviewed transpersonally-oriented journal; the only such journal with a longer history is the Journal of Transpersonal Psychology. Now in its 35th year of publication, IJTS was founded in 1981 by Don Diespecker, an Australian transpersonal psychologist and psychology professor.
