Introduction to transactional analysis (TA101)
This two-day, weekend course is packed full of useful models that can be applied in a wide range of work settings, as well as in your personal life. TA is used widely throughout the world in organisations, education, counselling, psychotherapy, parenting, coaching, and many other areas.
Participants are invited to reflect upon themselves and others, to integrate the learning, and to bring real examples from their life and identify alternative options for behaviour and communication that serve us better.
The teaching is interactive, lively, and stimulating, and groups are kept small to enhance learning. There will be a combination of teaching, discussion, practical exercise, and time for reflection.
We will cover topics such as;
- life script and how we make decisions early in our life that becomes unconscious and affect us now both professionally and personally
- psychological games and how we and others unconsciously set up repetitive patterns to keep our world predictable and familiar
- ego states and the different aspects of ourselves and others and how we can operate from each of these
- transactions and the ways with which we communicate with others
- rackets and how we and others can create our own reality and stay wedded to that
and much more
Pre-course requirements: None
- Day one - contracting, life script, life positions, ego states, transactions, functional modes
- Day two - discounting, games, time structuring, rackets, drivers, injunctions, autonomy

'I loved this course! It’s fast-paced and packed with incredibly useful ideas that were explained and illustrated with great examples and practice. We were supported as a group and individually by Leilani who is a brilliant trainer. She presented complex ideas and made them accessible. Engaging, informative and oh so useful!' - TA101 participant - January 2020
