The Ego State Model [Parent, Adult, and Child Ego States]
How To Analyse Communication [Transactional Analysis Proper]
Life Positions / Existential Positions (The "OK / Not-OK" States)
Strokes, Stroke Hunger & The Stroke Economy (Developmental & Motivational Psychology)
Script, Life Script & The Nature of Autonomy
Ego Game Analysis [Games]
Racket Systems, Substitute Emotions & Racketeering
Effective Communication Strategies [Red & Blue Communication]
Transactional Analysis Based Approaches to Therapy
Therapeutic Strategies Based on Transactional Analysis
Transactional Analysis offers a complete framework for human psychology that's premised on a Parent - Adult - Child model of 'Ego States' - one of it's general goals is to foster an 'Integrating Adult' ego state that can solve-problems, think rationality, and engage fully with the here and now processes of living and interacting.
By improving the ways in which people communicate we can help them to live more functional lives, engage in more healthy relationships, and relate more harmoniously with wider society.
This course calls on seven decades of theory and practice and pools it into a single, in-depth, learning package that will foster both your professional and your personal development. Whilst Transactional Analysis has applications in Educational Psychology and Organisational Psychology, this course focuses entirely on the clinical applications of Transactional Analysis and is designed with mental health professionals in mind.
One thing we'll explore at some points in the course is how we can connect these 'forgotten gem' concepts from Classic Transactional Analysis to modern mental health challenges; one particular area of promise is in relation to 'Social Media Addiction'. I invite you to connect the ideas we explore in this course to your own life, your own practice and the lives of those you work with.
