The TA academy offers an international online, multimedia introduction into Transactional Analysis by the authors/editors of the book Into TA, A comprehensive textbook on Transactional Analysis: Bill Cornell, Anne de Graaf, Trudi Newton and Moniek Thunnissen.
Transactional Analysis (TA) has been enjoying an increase in interest ever since its inception by the Canadian American psychiatrist Dr. Eric Berne in 1961. It has proven itself to be an extremely useful model for successful cooperation and communication, used by professionals working in a variety of contexts and fields, such as psychotherapy, coaching and counselling, management, and organizational development, or parenting and education. What makes TA such a powerful model? TA combines a highly accessible theory on the development of people and systems with a highly practical approach, centered on the options for growth and development.
In 19 days you will become acquainted with all basic Transactional Analysis (TA) concepts, covered in the book. The aim of the training program is to give you a comprehensive knowledge of TA, by guiding you through the book Into TA. Beside the 19 modules each student will participate in a peer-supervision group of max 4 or 5 students who will meet (also on Zoom) ten times over the academic year.
You will meet a team of 4 experienced and inspiring TSTA trainers. Course leader will be Anne de Graaf (NL) TSTA (O) & CTA (P). The other trainers will be Bill Cornell (USA) TSTA (P), Trudi Newton (UK) TSTA (E) and Moniek Thunnissen (NL) TSTA (P).
The result of this TA training is that in the role of a professional you are able to answer two important questions: 1) What is your thinking behind the intervention you did? 2) What could you have done differently? Reflecting on question 1) you will work more and more consciously with clients. Reflecting on question 2) discover more and more options for successful interventions. After you have finished the course, you have developed substantial knowledge, know-how and skills to work with TA at a sufficient level.
