Applied Topics in Transactional Analysis

Workshops for Continuing Professional Development, Autumn 2014

Once again we are offering our well-received series of training days in the practical applications of TA. We call the series "Applied Topics in Transactional Analysis". In our programmes, these practical training days are highlighted by the symbol /ATTA\. These applied trainings are designed to be of immediate practical use to counsellors, therapists and other helping professionals working in the specific areas covered by the /ATTA\ trainings. Participants need not have previous specialised knowledge of TA (though the series will also be useful to those in TA training); the accent is on practice and application, not on theory.

Wed. 19 Nov 2014: "Parenting Workshop"
Presenter: Adrienne Lee BA MPracNLP TSTA(P)

What does it mean to be a "good parent"? How do we learn to do this for our own children or children in our care, as well as for ourselves and our own intrapsychic Child?
   This workshop on TA and parenting is for professionals working with parents, children and families as well as for parents seeking greater understanding and skill. We will explore how to deal with and heal the primary wounds of abandonment, engulfment, hurt and non-relationship, and experience exercises in parenting using TA models and the Parenting Processes System devised by Adrienne. This describes the different roles and processes of Parenting so that deficits and negative processes can be identified and positive processes can be integrated. Parents can use this system to identify how to respond to and relate effectively with their children and enable them to develop healthy internal regulation. We will also explore the restorative aspects of parenting and the psychological need of the parent to reinforce or change their own childhood deficits in the process of parenting. Participants will be invited to share parenting experiences and get supervision and support for issues that need to be resolved.
   Adrienne Lee is a Certified Transactional Analyst in the Psychotherapy field with over 30 years' clinical experience, accredited by the European Association for Transactional Analysis, UKCP registered psychotherapist, Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Time Line therapist, a Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst and Co-Director of The Berne Institute. She focuses on Process Group Therapy and the integration of transpersonal and relational psychotherapy with traditional TA.
