Are you on the autism spectrum or know someone who is? A TA colleague has teamed up with a former student of ours to provide a TA 101 program that is specifically tailored for those on the autism spectrum, as well as their families. Click here for further details.
Although TA was originally devised with a focus on pathology and therapy, this programme will demonstrate how a positive psychology approach changes the theories into potent models for development rather than cure.
Content will include well-known TA concepts such as:
Games people play; positive and negative strokes and warm fuzzies; I’m OK, You’re OK; Parent, Adult, Child; Little Professor - plus, to quote TA jargon, transactional analysis philosophy and practices; structural and functional ego states; transactions; time structuring; scripts versus autonomy; drivers versus working styles; and cycles of development.
Each workshop will be led by Julie Hay, who has over 40 years experience as an 'ordinary employee', supervisor, staff representative, manager, trainer, consultant in industry, local government and the public sector. Julie has been teaching TA around the world for over 25 years and is the author of many publications about TA.
Julie's courses are highly regarded, very practical, and fun to be at.
International Status of the TA 101
The '101' label is borrowed from the US educational system to indicate a beginner's course and is the customary way of referring to the internationally approved introduction to transactional analysis.
Run only by internationally qualified trainers, to an agreed syllabus, this course covers the whole range of TA concepts, including well-known ones such as Parent, Adult and Child (PAC), different strokes for different folks, games people play, life scripts, and so on – and less well-known ones such as characteristic working styles, dependency relationships, stages of child development, and lots more.
Over the course of two days, you will learn about the various elements of transactional analysis and how they can help you understand yourself, other people and the dynamics that occur in couples, groups, families, teams, classrooms, and organisations. Transactional analysis is widely used in psychotherapy, counselling, organisational consulting, teaching and training, coaching, team building - and can be applied to management and leadership, customer service, social work, parenting skills – and just about anything that involves people interacting with each other.
