Foundation certificate in transactional analysis
138 Low Lane
The foundation certificate in transactional analysis (TA) is a one year post-graduate level course which, as well as a stand alone qualification, is also a requirement for further training in TA with us and other TA training institutions. The programme runs over 10 weekends (120 hours), one weekend per month, and covers the core concepts in TA.
The foundation certificate is very much about understanding TA theory through application to self and our own situations. On completion of the programme, trainees are eligible for the UKATA TA award. The course can lead to further training either at diploma or certified transactional analyst level.
Each weekend of the foundation certificate is made up of a theory and skills day where trainees will have the opportunity to learn about the theory and then look at how to apply it. Teaching is structured to include a mixture of didactic teaching, triad, small and large group work, discussions, experiential exercises, study groups and tutorials. Some of the activities will include lectures, handouts, using video, role play, case study, group discussion, supervision of skills and skills practice.
Course content is as follows:
- Weekend one; an introduction to TA and contracting.
- Weekend two; ego states and transactions.
- Weekend three; script.
- Weekend four; games.
- Weekend five; rackets and the racket system.
- Weekend six; personality adaptations.
