Counselling Training - Introduction to Transactional Analysis

TA101 – Official Introduction to Transactional Analysis
2 day course 22nd and 23rd September at Burrswood

Brief description of training: Are you interested in human behaviour and communication, where it can go wrong and what to do about it? Would you like to understand your own and others motivation. If so, this course is for you.

Transactional Analysis is a model for understanding relationships, communication and human behaviour. Created by Eric Berne in the 1950’s (author of the bestselling book ‘Games People Play’) and further developed by others over the past 50 years, TA is now widely used in education, counselling, psychotherapy, management, coaching, parenting and many other areas.

This course will introduce some of the main concepts of TA including Life Script, Psychological Games, Ego States and Transactions. We will look at how to relate these concepts to others and ourselves and identify alternative options for our behaviour and communication.

Who is it for: Anybody interested in people - particularly those who regularly interact with others, within their personal or professional life. People who have benefited from this course include: counsellors, health professionals, teachers, parents, managers, consultants and therapists.

Recognition: On completion of this course you will be awarded a certificate recognised by the International Transactional Analysis Association (ITAA) and the European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA). This certificate is a requirement if you wish later to enter in to accredited training as a TA Practitioner.

Brief outcomes of training:  Participants will have a basic understanding of the core concepts of Transactional Analysis that they can apply to themselves and others. They will have gained insight in to their own process using these models.
