The course details:

Workshop 1 (10 May)


The value of ensuring the Administrative and Professional components are attended to as well as considering what the hidden (or unconscious) Psychological contact might be.

Workshop 2 (14 June)

Ego states

Parent Adult Child - when we converse with others, how we experience that interaction and what transpires between the parties.

Workshop 3 (12 July)


Transactions and how they work – when communication flows easily, when it stops abruptly, when it turns nasty and how to get it back on track.

Workshop 4 (9 August)

Life Positions

Our view and others' view of the world - I'm OK, You're OK or  They're NOT OK; how we acquire these positions and the implications for our and others' interactions.

Workshop 5 (4 October)

Games Analysis and Time Structuring

When our fundamental hungers for stimulus, belonging and structure are not met, we are likely to resort to psychological games.  We learn what happens in these psychological games, why we play them and how to turn them from dramas into constructive 'wins'.  We all need recognition and negative recognition is better than none. When we learn about how to manage our social interactions we communicate much more effectively. 

Workshop 6 (15 November)


We all need positive recognition or strokes and when we don't get them we resort to negative strokes because no strokes are unbearable.    
Workshop 7 (6 December)


The way we avoid or ignore information that results in ineffective strategies and how to use the booklet 'Steps to Success' to turn it around.
Workshop 8 (14 February)


We identify the substitute inauthentic strategies we developed as children to 'survive' and identify appropriate authentic responses that meet our 'today' adult needs.

Script analysis 1
