Course content

The theories are taught with lots of examples to assist you to apply them in everyday life.  Various small group exercises are used to give practical application of the theory.  These will help you understand yourself and others and make the changes you want.

The course will cover:

Definition of TA

An overview of how TA has developed.


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.

Ego states

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



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.

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.

Game analysis

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'.

Racket analysis

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

Script analysis

The stories we adopted as children to make sense of the world and how we take these into our 'now' adult world.


The process of being aware of ourselves and others', responding spontaneously from our authentic self so we achieve truly meaningful relationships - intimacy.
