TA101: What is Transactional Analysis?

“TA is a theory of communication which can be extended to analysing systems and organisations”

“TA is a theory of personality and a systematic psychotherapy for personal growth and change”

TA originated in the 1950s with the work of Eric Berne, and in the present day provides in-depth training leading to qualifications in: education; organisation applications; psychotherapy; and counselling. Three of these four fields are available through TA Works.

The TA101 is the initial 12+ hour course, which can stand alone or provide the entry qualification for further training (available in Oxford, across Britain and in many other countries). The TA101 provides an overview of TA concepts, examples of application and opportunities.

Who is the TA101 programme for?

Anyone. People find it provides both personal learning and direct tools for their work; for example: counsellors, managers, parents and teachers. It stands alone – or can lead to further training in TA in Oxford or elsewhere internationally, continuing if wished, to qualifications in organisational, educational or counselling applications of TA with TAworks or in psychotherapy elsewhere.

Who is the trainer?

Rosemary Napper is certified in counselling, organisational and educational applications in transactional analysis (BACP accredited). She is also a teaching and supervising transactional analyst (TSTA) in these fields of application and also TA-based coaching programmes; well-qualified as a trainer, and author of several articles and books including co-author of TACTICS – a practical manual about TA informing the process of learning.
