What is Transactional Analysis?

Transactional Analysis (TA) is a framework to discover our psychological personality structure, how we function, our communication & relationship patterns, internal motivations, formation of attitude and the goal of having an authentic capacity to adapt to life circumstances.

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 psychotherapy, education, organisations and counselling. Its simple and profound language makes it accessible to people from all walks of life. Its philosophy that determines okay-ness in people, capacity to think and ability to choose stems from the possibility of change transactional analysis concepts emphasise

How do these concepts benefit participants / organizations?
  • Theory of child development: The concept of life script helps to understand the developmental patterns originating from childhood with parental influences and helps us discover the strength and limitations of our growth and change.
  • The concept of psychological games which is the door to intimacy, helps us discover an unhealthy repetitive pattern of behaviors that impact our everyday life circumstances using concepts from transactions.
  • The concept of existential life positions helps us understand our attitude towards the self, others and the environment we live. Also enables participants to understand how their attitudes are formed from childhood, and how they behave in stressful situations.
  • Our motivation and meaning for life evolve from the psychological hunger we have imbibed during the course of our growing-up circumstances. We discover all these through life examples, exercises etc.
  • The theory of communication helps participants discover the pattern of their communication using the ego state model, which helps to analyse the infinite options in having complementary and cross-transactions
  • The theory of psychological structure helps explain the content we have internalised from our environment and how these contents influence our corresponding behaviour.
