Abstract:

This research aimed at studying the effectiveness of transactional analysis on increasing family functioning in distressed couples referring to Boroujen City Family Welfare Center. Population of the study included all the distressed couples referring to this center. The 30 distressed couples were randomly selected from among the volunteers who responded to the researcherís call for increasing family functioning. The couples were randomly assigned into experimental and control groups (15 couples for each). The research plan included pre- and post-test with the control group. Transactional analysis and family functioning were the independent and the dependent variables, respectively. Both groups were pre-tested. The experimental group received eight sessions of training on Transactional Analysis. Then both groups were post-tested. This research used Family Assessment Device (FAD) as the instrument of data collection. Results from descriptive statistical methods and Multivariate Covariance Analysis (MANCOVA) showed the effectiveness of transactional analysis therapy on increasing family functioning (problem solving, communication, roles, affective responsiveness, affective involvement, behavioral control and general functioning) among the couples of the experimental group as compared to the control group.
