International * Interactive *  Internet

Do you want to:

  • Increase your self awareness through analysing yourself across a wide range of psychological frameworks?
  • Enhance your people skills through using these frameworks to analyse others so you can better choose the most effective ways to communicate with them?
  • Improve your ability to understand and work effectively with the dynamics of groups, teams, families and organisations?


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 as well as cure. 

This programme is open to anyone who is interested in understanding human behaviour.  
It is just as relevant for personal as for professional development.

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

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 12 hours, 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.
