Free Evening Seminars, Spring - Summer 2015

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.

 19th March 2016: "Unlearning Goodness" Enid Welford TSTA(P)  

Our ideas about what is 'good' and 'bad' have a strong impact on our self worth, and are usually swallowed whole in childhood with little questioning. 'Being good' can be used to suppress the life energy within us. We will take a light-hearted look at some of our script beliefs about goodness, the sources from which we got them, and their usefulness to us as adults. Hopefully we will unlearn some ideas about goodness, and find ways to develop useful beliefs.

 14th May 2016: "Taking the fear out of the process: Working with a client with a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder" Cholena Mountain CTA MSc PTSTA(P)  

The session will be based on "The Borderline Personality Disorder Tool" developed by Michelle Ayres. Ayres developed the tool for clients and clinicians working with clients with borderline personality disorder.

 25th June 2016: "Why suffering is good for you" Will Roberts CTA MSc PTSTA(P)  

Suffering is universal. We take a look at the positive side of pain and how it can serve us. What is suffering for? And how can we learn to appreciate it? We will be considering these questions and more.

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.
