Transactional Analysis Official 101 for Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Doctors,Teachers and Coaches 3/4th September 2016 from 9:30-5:30 both days.

The 101 is an exciting weekend in which the overview of Transactional Analysis is explained, its context, its applications, its relevance today and its integration of some of the main traditions in applied psychology.

Its roots lie in Psychoanalysis, it also has many ideas in common with CBT, Existential philosophy and has a way of applying its principles to Social Psychology, the study of groups and organisations.

It has suffered from the simplicity of language which Berne had intended to make more accessible to his patients. and has been degraded in many settings particularly in Sales and Marketing where a little knowledge shows very little understanding of how sophisticated  Berne's ideas were/ and are. 

There is a wonderful story of Berne being on a plane, next to an astronomer who asked what he did. When Berne replied  I am a doctor and I founded Transactional Analysis, the fellow passenger said.

" Oh I know PAC, Parent Adult Child"

When Berne asked what he did and was told he was an astronomer he replied

" Oh I know twinkle twinkle little star"

Its usefulness is significant in so many settings, including education, family mediation, management as well as the professions mentioned above.

The weekend will be a combination of teaching, exercises, personal discovery, discussions and application. It will be engaging, informative, collaborative and fun. It will also be a forum for serious case discussion to  take place, in principle.

It can be followed up with further modules if there is the wish to continue.
