Approaches to Counselling: Transational Analysis Therapy
S01156

This introductory course to Transactional Analysis (TA) is for those interested in understanding human behaviour, communication and relationships.

You will examine the theory of TA, including the structure of personality; interpersonal transactions; the psychological games we play; and life scripts. You will have the opportunity to apply the theory to your own behaviour and the behaviour of others in your group.

The course will be particularly useful to you if you work in the helping professions, or in management or teaching. It will also be helpful to you if you are interested in understanding more fully your relationships with others.

Course Content

Psychological game playing
Why we find ourselves in those ?it is happening again? moments
