The theories covered in each workshop will be taught with lots of examples. Small group exercises will be used so you can apply them to your daily work and personal life. These will help you understand yourself and others and make the changes you want.
The course details:
Workshop 1 (10 May)

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.
