Free Evening Seminars, Autumn 2014
Our seminars are free of charge both to "Berne" members and to non-members. In each seminar, the presenter(s) share their new thinking about a topic in transactional analysis or a closely related field. There is plenty of time for discussion, questions, and the interchange and generation of ideas.
All the seminars will be on Saturday evenings.You are invited to arrive at 7 p.m. for a drink and snack before the seminar (bring food to share, if you wish: “The Berne” provides light refreshments with wine and soft drinks). The seminar presentation itself runs from 7.30 – 9.00 p.m.
(No seminars in July or August)
13 Sept.: "Symbiosis" Jules Marshall PTSTA(P) I'm fascinated by relationships and how symbiosis plays such an important part in them. We will explore the development of symbiosis and its healthy and unhealthy manifestations.
18 Oct.: "TA and Gender: That's not Ladylike…Be a Man about it" Andy Williams PTSTA (P) and Lin Cheung MSc PTSTA(P) We will explore "the hidden" in gender scripting and its relevance for the community and for psychotherapy.
8 Nov.: "Enhancing Relationships" Jennie Miller MSc PTSTA(P) We will show how the Drama Triangle and ego states can be used in work with couples to understand the causes of relationship difficulties and how to deal with them.
13 Dec.: "Happiness or Autonomy?" Barbara Monk-Steel BA MSc RMN PGD TSTA(P) In TA we have autonomy as the ultimate goal. People also seek happiness. We will look at how to increase happiness, using ideas from Positive Psychology, and consider how this invites autonomy.
The seminars are held at our training centre, Berne House, situated in the village of Kegworth, about ten miles south of Nottingham and just one mile from Junction 24 on the M1. Berne House is No.29 on Derby Road, which is the main A6 through Kegworth. We have our own off-road parking space. If you would like more detailed directions to the seminars, please call us.
