Transactional Analysis was developed by Eric Berne in the 1950s and 1960s, he wrote 8 major books and numerous articles. He was a trained medical doctor and psychiatrist and he wanted to make psychotherapy effective more quickly and more accessible for people. He wanted to remove the distance between client or patient, and doctor as expert. He encouraged people to engage with and use the theory for themselves. Because of this TA uses normal everyday language and is easily accessible and understood.
The course is dynamic mixture of formal teaching where the trainer will present an idea or concept from TA and lots of discussion in large and small groups as the delegates on the course apply it to themselves and their situations.
The syllabus is set internationally and covers the key ideas and concepts in TA in a short two day programme. Those people who then want more can go on the study TA in-depth which begins with a one year introductory course and can lead to a post graduate Diploma and the Certificate in Transactional Analysis which is a worldwide qualification and is at Masters Level.
