TA101: Internationally Recognised Curriculum
TA in Action – Clinical & Organisational Settings
PsychCentral and Pathways Limited in collaboration with the Australian Centre for Integrative Studies (ACIS) will continue to offer Practitioners and Coaches in Asia an opportunity to train in Transactional Analysis.
WHAT IS TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS (TA)?
Founded by Eric Berne in the late 50s, Transactional analysis (TA) is now a widely recognised psychological theory and methodology. It provides us with ways to understand personality development and relationship patterns.
It illuminates the three self-states (i.e., parent, adult and child ego) and assists us in communicating more effectively.
The theory and practice of TA can assist individuals in reaching their full potential and achieving a sense of well-being.
TA integrates humanistic, psychoanalytic and behavioural approaches and can be applied in many professional areas. Although it is commonly recognised as a brief, solution-focused approach it is also effective in long-term treatment with clients.
APPLICATION OF TA
Transactional Analysis can be applied across a diverse range of cultures and used in any field where there is a need to understand communication patterns in individuals, couples, families or groups.
Transactional analysis offers the opportunity to develop skills in many professional and personal areas of life. It has especially been found to be effective with teams and organisations.
