The TA 101 course is the official Introduction to Transactional Analysis. Transactional Analysis (TA) is a theory of personality, communication and child development and offers a range of models that can be used to understand communication, relationships, dynamics in organisations and groups. It was originally developed in the 1950s by the late Eric Berne, MD. This introductory course will enable you to gain an understanding of how structure of personality is developed; How we communicate with one another by learning about transactions using ego states, psychological “games” we may play with specific people in our lives and how they are repetitive and painful yet we still keep playing them; and life scripts how these games reinforce beliefs about ourselves and others. Particpants will have the opportunity to apply the theory to their own behaviour and discuss this with others in the group.

Who should attend? This “TA 101″ course will be particularly useful to you if you work in the helping professions, or in management, communications or teaching. It will also be helpful to you if you are interested in understanding more fully your relationships with others.
