The two-day TA 101 course is the official introduction to transactional analysis. TA is a great tool to add to your professional skills. It is a theory of personality and offers a range of models that can be used to understand communication and relationships.

Discover the theories of Transactional Analysis; a psychological model of personality and communication developed by Eric Berne for understanding how humans develop, behave, communicate and interact with each other. Once you understand how you behave in certain situations and why, you can then make your interactions with others more pleasant and effective.

We cover the answers to common psychological questions, such as:

  • “Why do I act like my mum or dad?” or “Why do I feel like a little kid again?” (Ego states)
  • “Do I sense the car crash coming in this conversation?” (Psychological games)
  • “Why do I keep on making the same mistakes?” (Life scripts)
  • “What is going on in this conversation?” (Transactions)

We limit the number places on the TA101 course to make sure every attendee gets the most out of the course. Our small group sizes mean you get personalised support from your tutors and lots of time for discussion with others, individual feedback and personal reflection. The TA101 course is practical and interactive, enabling you to put what you are learning straight into practice.
