About Transactional Analysis
Transactional Analysis (TA) is a social psychology developed by Eric Berne, MD (d.1970). Though TA was initially developed as an approach to psychotherapy, over the past 50 years of its growth, it has found wider application in all fields concerning human growth and change, namely counselling, education, organisations, and coaching. Its simplicity makes it accessible to people from all walks of life. Its universal value that ‘people are ok’, its emphasis on people’s power to choose and the immense hope it places on the possibility of change, makes it relevant to all cultures.
TA consists of certain key concepts, framework, practical tools that help to understand SELF and develop autonomy in personal growth as well as OKAYness that nurtures inclusion and intimacy in relationship. This significantly contributes in developing a positive environment around people to move on delightfully across personal, family, professional, and social spheres in our lives.
What is covered in the course?
The course covers the basic philosophy of TA and major concepts:
- Philosophy and history of TA
- Ego states
- Life Positions
- Time structure
A Few Concepts and How These Benefit Participants / Organizations
- TA contains a theory of child development. The concept of life-script in it , explains how our present life patterns originated in childhood. In this workshop participants are enabled to facilitate a journey to their SELF, understand themselves and their significant others better. It also unveils the roots of their behavioral patterns which is very important in the optimization of individual productivity in their work life.
- This equips themselves to break free from their unhealthy repetitive pattern of behaviours that affect their performance in different walks of everyday life. They can apply the same thing for their personal reflections that synchronise family relationships and their behaviour modifications.
- The course unveil the basic stimulants that inspire a person to act and activate. It also revolves around the factors that shape the basic attitude of a person. So, practice in the workshop prepares them to install fountains of motivation in themselves to accept and to be accepted. They can be instrumental in creating a positive working environment in the family, work place, and around them, or wherever they are. This is fundamental for positive organizational work culture and a healthy family environment.
- The concept of life position enables participants to understand how their attitudes are formed from childhood, and how they behave in stressful situations. They also get clues to the attitude of the people around them. The workshop prepares them to re-engineer their attitude towards themselves, others, and the team they work with.
- TA is a theory of communication too. The workshop enlightens participants on the pattern of their communication – transactions – in everyday life. The analysis of the complementary and cross transactions with life examples equip them to reflect on themselves qualitatively in the transactions that they make with different people in different contexts in a day.
- Awareness of psychological games that people play in relationships in day to day life reduces the damages of conflict, and they can fine-tune their relationships more authentically to develop more intimacy and bond among themselves.
- Ego states explains the structure of psychological energy that we use and its behavioural manifestations. This is one of the key concepts to readily practice after the workshop that will enhance the quality of communication, relationship and team work at the work place as well as organizations that participants are involved with, particularly if they are in leadership roles.
