The Interrelation Between Functional Ego-States and Coping Strategies of Organization Workers
Transactional analysis started as a psychotherapeutical method and recently was introduced into the context of organisations [Aldoghan, 2014;Warner, 2014], yet interrelaions of its key concept - ego-states - with other traits of organization workers (such as self-efficacy and coping strategies) were not highlighted. The present study pursuits a goal of investigating these interconnections between functional ego-states, preferred coping strategies and general self-efficacy level of organization workers. Three similar forms (brief COPE scale (adapted by Rasskazova, Gordeeva, Osin); general self-efficacy scale; functional ego-states scale by Julie Hay (adapted by W. E. Gusakovskij)) were deployed to survey workers of different organizations, results of which were processed by correlational and regression analysis. The final sample (N=50) was divided into professional clusters to be compared against a set of characteristics measured. The initial hypotheses were partly verified and a decent model of self-efficacy was developed. Results of the study can be used to bolster the work of professional psychologists and deepen the knowledge of TA in different conditions.
