TA Training - Developmental, Coaching,  Psychotherapy, Management

Our Transactional Analysis Training Programmes

We offer a full range of transactional analysis training and professional supervision, in groups, one-to-one and online, leading to a range of qualifications.

At Psychological Intelligence Foundation, facilitating the development of skills through TA learning and awareness is at the core of what we do, helping individuals and groups become more effective in their jobs, careers and everyday lives, and contributing to the creation of healthy family, community and organisational cultures.

Our training programmes cater for all skill levels, ranging from introductory TA courses (TA 101), through to advanced training, techniques and skills development for those who want to continue to develop others and themselves.

We also provide the associated professional supervision required, to maximise your learning and meet the requirements of professional bodies (TA202/TA303/TA909), which can be used toward gaining additional qualifications.

Our qualified and friendly team of trainers, led by Julie Hay, provide interactive international webinars - we aim to make TA accessible as widely as possible (and 'after covid' we will 'add back' some workshops around the world) .

We'd love to talk to you about how we can help you start using Transactional Analysis to develop yourself, your career and your organisation.

Who are our courses for?

Our courses are attended by coaches, consultants, counsellors, psychotherapists, managers, teachers, trainers, social workers, educators, HR professionals  - and others who have roles where the development of others is a significant responsibility.

They are just as relevant for anyone who wants to know more about the psychology of human behaviour, whether applied to themselves, clients, colleagues, teams, families, schools, organisations, communities - in other words, people generally,

They are also for those who are responsible for developing practitioners who develop others.

Introductory & Advanced Training

TA 101 - Introductory TA Training

Named in line with US educational conventions where TA 101 means beginners, this officially-recognised introductory course in TA covers an internationally agreed syllabus.  

Course content ranges across the major TA concepts - well-known (and often misrepresented) ones such as Parent-Adult-Child, strokes, games, script - and many more that are less well-known but just as enlightening.

We also run TA Introductory Courses To suit specific needs, such as when the syllabus of covering 'everything' over 12 hours means it is not targeted enough.

TA 202 / TA 303 - TA Training for Professionals

Staying with the US naming convention means that TA 202s (and sometimes TA 303s) are anything that is more advanced that the TA 101 Introduction!

Hence anything above the introductory level are TA 202s (or Ta 303 onwards)  This means that they are run by internationally-endorsed TA trainers, and that the hours provided can be counted by participants towards getting their own TA qualifications (if they wish - you can attend our programmes for personal or professional development without the exams!)

TA 909 - 'Very' Advanced TA - And Exam Preparation

TA 909 is our fun way of indicating that we also run more advanced workshops, for those who already have some TA 202/303 background.

Also referred to as exam preparation workshops, these run regularly during the year and as summer schools.

We bring together TA 202/303 students with those already qualified as practitioners and preparing for the next levels - whether that be international TA endorsement as trainers and supervisors, or for a Master's degree based on training and supervising others to get their own TA qualifications.

Learning Together

In the early years of TA development, training was not separated into different fields.  

Julie Hay learned her TA from a psychotherapist, alongside others with a range of interests. 

Over the years, the different fields of TA have been introduced and pulled further and further apart. 

This makes it harder for practitioners to understand how their colleagues work, causes delays in developing a professional identity, and gets in the way of adding competences in different contexts. 

To counteract this trend, we offer training in the old style, with the eventual field of practice being determined by the work-based evidence that our students generate. 

If you prefer to be a generalist, you can be.  

If you prefer to specialise – coaching, consulting, educating, Management,etc – you can do that too. 

If you are already TA qualified in one field, we will help you add another. If you are already ITAA or EATA qualified, we can help you get a Master's degree through accreditation of prior learning (APL).

Workshops & Webinars

Choose to attend any selection from our modular series.

Run by internationally accredited TA trainers, showing how TA can be applied effectively in the development of individuals, groups, teams, families and organisations. 

Linked to the requirements of the optional qualifications, Our webinars and workshops are suitable whatever your current knowledge because we work on several levels: self-awareness, developing others, building your skills and preparing for TA exams (optional).

We do not provide a detailed programme in advance because content is chosen shortly beforehand to ensure that the latest thinking is included.  However, we guarantee that content will be relevant for the various qualifications and awards. 

We also provide comprehensive workbooks in advance so that participants can prompt the trainer with particular interests, and to facilitate self-study afterwards. These are slowly also being published as free books.

The content and style of training will also facilitate increased self-awareness, knowledge of TA theories and skills of context-based application.

Our training gives you the chance to try out various models and techniques, learn new approaches, understand the theories, and generally increase your skills. 

Optional supervision is focused on the specific needs of those present, providing opportunities to resolve personal, interpersonal or professional issues.

Our webinars are run as closely as possible to the style of our workshops, in that participants can comment and question at any time, and can see other participants on webcam within our online seminar environment. 

We encourage interactivity within our webinars.  This is not the type of online training where participants engage only through typed questions.  We Use frequent breakout rooms and encourage our online students to form groups Through social media so they become communities of practice.
