Transactional Analysis (TA) is a model for understanding human behaviour, communication and relationships. It was originally developed in the 1950s by the late Eric Berne, MD. This introductory course will examine the theory of TA, including the structure of personality; transactions, or the way we relate to others; time structuring; the psychological "games" we play; and life scripts. Members of the course will have the opportunity to apply the theory to their own behaviour and the behaviour of others in the group.

Who should attend? This "TA 101" course will be particularly useful to you if you work in the helping professions, or in management, communications or teaching. It will also be helpful to you if you are interested in understanding more fully your relationships with others.

Recognition This course - the "official TA 101" - is recognised by the International Transactional Analysis Association (ITAA) and the European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA) as their standard approved introduction to TA. Completion of the course affords you the "TA 101" certificate, a necessary requirement if you should later wish to enter accredited training as a TA practitioner.
