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.
23 May: "Technology and TA" Will Roberts MSc PTSTA(P) What are the implications of using the social media as a vehicle for TA psychotherapy? We will discuss recent research into using the Internet, telephone and Skype for psychotherapy and counselling.
27 June: "Metaphor and Symbol: Speaking the Language of the Child" Ian Stewart BA PhD MPracNLP TSTA(P) The young Child makes sense of the world through metaphor, symbol and bodily experience, rather than through language. In this seminar we shall explore ways of working directly with metaphors and symbols, allowing us to "speak" with the early Child. By doing so, we can help promote easy, fast and lasting change.
19 Sept.: "TA and our Planet" Adrienne Lee BA MPracNLP TSTA(P) We will discuss how ecological issues affect the transactional analyst and how TA theory can invite greater awareness of and influence on our environment.
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.
