#TA101: The Official Introduction to Transactional Analysis 2016-17

Come and experience the Official Introduction to Transactional Analysis – The #TA101.

Transactional Analysis offers some wonderful concepts for understanding how as humans we communicate and relate to each other and ourselves.  These will be delivered in an interactive and lively way, with many opportunities for personal reflection and experiential learning. The course will offer insights for everyone, both personally and professionally. And is offered in an intimate, confidential setting to ensure maximum learning.

Over the two days you will begin to understand many concepts that have become part of everyday modern language. Including:
– the structure of personality
– Transactions – our options for communicating with others
– Time Structuring – how we stay in and out of contact
– Psychological Games that we play to repeat familiar feelings, and avoid intimacy
– Life Scripts – how we decide so early our path
– The development of Parent, Adult and Child Ego States

Working Relationally Online

AAEAAQAAAAAAAAjZAAAAJDc4NjM0OTU3LWYyODMtNGZmMS1hM2NlLWQ4NTk2N2RjNjFhYQ-1

I’ve been reading and listening to the work #Dr_Aaron_Balick, and reflecting on implications for #therapeutic_relating with #clients_online.

I’m also interested in his concept of the #Tinderisation of everyday life, and it’s impact when working with younger people who’s world of relating is often quick, virtual, and can end as suddenly as it starts.

How do these pieces of research effect my awareness and ability to be with my clients ethically and emotionally?

I’m currently putting together a #workshop on working_remotely_and_the_challenges_for_psychotherapist and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Please contact me if you think there is something you’d like to see in a workshop like this.

In the meantime, I strongly recommend catching up with him and his work where you can.
