TA101 – Understanding You, Me and Us

The official introduction to Transactional Analysis.

Group training session at Physis Scotland

Fiona Firman, PTSTA highlights the benefits of the TA101 – Introduction to Transactional Analysis

Transactional Analysis (TA) is an amazingly powerful psychological theory that has the surprising quality of being easily accessible for the newcomer, yet with a depth and complexity that can fascinate and satisfy practitioners for a lifetime.

Transactional Analysis is a powerful system of psychological models, that can be used to understand and work with our personal and interpersonal dynamics in the workplace, in personal relationships, and in educational and organisational settings. Transactional Analysis is a widely accessible and practical modality, offering simple tools for making long lasting and far reaching change at a personal level, and across systems and organisations.

Transactional Analysis enables us to identify quickly and clearly:

  • Where breakdowns in communication are taking place

  • Where there are blocks to learning and development

  • Where there are unrealised potentials within a team

  • How an organisation can maximise opportunities to achieve its potential

  • How to increase cooperation, collaboration and productivity within and across teams

  • What are our personal blocks to success and happiness

About the course

This two-day course is an internationally recognised qualification and is your passport to becoming a TA psychotherapist or counsellor. You will be introduced to a ‘banquet’ of TA and will be invited to reflect on yourself and others, to integrate your learning and to consider how you can potentially identify new options for communication and behaviour to enhance your life and relationships in the here-and-now.

The material is delivered in a stimulating, interactive and experiential way, using a combination of didactic teaching, working in pairs and small groups, time for reflection and group discussion. Groups are kept small in number to ensure a safe and intimate learning environment, and to maximise your learning experience.

We are delighted to offer our TA 101 courses online and in-person. Our in-person courses are delivered at Physis Scotland’s beautiful premises in the heart of Edinburgh’s West End, and our online courses are delivered via Zoom, where you can join us from the comfort of your own home and from wherever you are located around the globe. Please be sure to check the details on our booking page, as to whether the course you are registering on is online or in-person.

What you will gain

The two-day TA101 course will provide you with a dynamic and interactive experience which will:

  • Introduce you to the key theory of personality, communication and development

  • Enable you to apply the theory to situations in your personal and professional relationships

  • Entitle you to receive the internationally recognised (European Association of Transactional Analysis) TA101 Certificate, which is a prerequisite for anyone wishing to train further in TA.

The pace and variety of content was perfect for keeping me engaged and feeling like I learned but wanting to know more. We did a lot of interactive and self-reflective bits which I appreciated as it helped solidify knowledge.
