Free Evening Seminars, Autumn 2013
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.
16 Nov.: "Death and TA" Frances Townsend MSc PGDSvn PTSTA(P) We will be integrating Existential philosophy with TA concepts relating to death and our acceptance of death, and focus particularly on Life Positions and Physis.
7 Dec.: "Family Scripts at Christmas" Will Roberts MSc PTSTA(P) Have you ever wondered why families have repeated rituals at Christmas and such resistance to making changes - even when everyone says they are sick of repeating the same old pattern? We will consider what drives the content of these rituals and why they are so important.
25 Jan. 2014: "What is Love?" Julia Tolley MBACP PTSTA(P) We all experience love - or do we? How do we give and receive love? As we look at supporting theories, including neuroscience, we begin to understand that love is more than just emotion. Our brain development and the emotional capacity of love is founded in attachment theory furthered by ego-state development. So let's connect, have some fun, and experience love together.
22 Feb.: "Anger" Lin Cheung MSc PGCD PTSTA(P) A developmental approach to anger developed by Vann Joines will be presented with a discussion around how to use the model for treatment planning and working with clients.
15 Mar.: "Claiming the Lost" Enid Welford TSTA(P) We will consider ideas from Bert Hellinger's Family Constellations regarding the value of the dead in the family system. Our focus will be on those who have been shut out or lost to the family memory, and what happens to them and to the system when they are claimed.
