The Official Introduction to Transactional Analysis. ( TA101)

Please note: Our June and July courses are currently full.  Please email to be placed on a waiting list for any cancelled places. 

This course is for those interested in learning TA for the first time or building on a basic level of knowledge. The course is lively, interactive and fun while offering students useful theories and concepts that they can apply both in their personal and professional lives

This course will introduce some of the main concepts of TA including ideas such as:

  • Life script and how we make decisions early in our life that become unconscious and affect us now both professionally and personally
  • Psychological games and how we and others unconsciously set up repetitive patterns to keep our world predictable and familiar
  • Ego States and the different aspects of ourselves and others and how we can operate from each of these
  • Transactions and the ways with which we communicate with others
  • Rackets and how we and others can create our own reality and stay wedded to that
  • and much more

We will look at how to relate these concepts to ourselves and others and identify alternative options for behaviour and communication to serve us better

Participants will be invited to use the theory presented to reflect on their own process. There will be a combination of teaching, discussion, practical exercise and time for reflection.

“When I asked around the TA community, the advice I had was that the Link Centre is one of the strongest training organisations in the UK.” Hugh Mason

May I take this opportunity to say just what  a wonderful course that was and that I am so going to learn and develop from this.  Your course made me be the most honest that I have ever felt towards myself and that was an immeasurable gift” – TA101 participant – July 2016
