Online TA Events – 2 Hours – in collaboration with Online Events

Our online workshops take place on Monday mornings 10am-12pm (GMT) and Tuesday evenings from 6pm-8pm (GMT).  All the talks are in English but some are being translated LIVE into BCS, Russian, Hindi, Romanian, Italian, Spanish, Polish, Bengali, German and Dutch. We are striving to make TA (and some other topics) accessible to all.

The inspiring talks, presentations and discussions are in collaboration with Online Events. To book scroll to the set of  “Book this Course” green buttons at the bottom or right hand side of the page. 

The events are hosted on the Zoom meeting platform, where we will use our camera and microphones to interact with each other as a group and we will utilise the Zoom breakout rooms function for small group work.

These workshops are offered on a self-select fee. Please contribute what you can, so the group is accessible for all colleagues.

These events will include live discussion and group process and any workshop recording is edited accordingly.

You will need a webcam and microphone as well as a good internet connection, although these can also be accessed on a phone or tablet.

Workshop Recordings: The recordings from the workshops are available as an option when you purchase a ticket for the event or via this link : Library ( .   It takes a little while to process and edit the recording and the link will be sent to you as soon as it is available. 

Workshop Queries: If you have a query regarding your bookings for these talks or Zoom access to the talk or recordings, please email  

Upcoming Workshops….

Topic: Porn Addiction: A TA Perspective

Date: Tuesday 30th November               Time: 18.00-20.00 (GMT)

Speaker: Wilf Hashimi

Over the past two decades, access to pornography has become considerably easier with the advent of the internet. Lockdowns in Britain since March 2020 have for many people increased both a sense of isolation and a dependency on the internet for human interaction, and the temptation to seek a quick fix of the “feel good” factor offered by pornography is only a click away for many hours of the day.
In this workshop, we shall be considering:
•What we mean by pornography: what is legal, moral, supportive or harmful?
•What we mean by addiction: the intrapsychic processes of compulsive behaviours and question if this is an addiction
•The neuroscientific process involved: what is happening in the brain during cycles of sexual desire and satisfaction
•How we locate these concepts in a TA framework and how we can think about this as Transactional Analysts
•What strategies might be useful: how can we be of service to those who are struggling with unhealthy use of pornography?
Wilf will also touch more generally on the current legal and socio-political aspects of using the internet to access pornography during the lockdown.
Additionally, we shall visit (and revisit!) the problems, causes and even benefits (yes, really!) of viewing pornography online.

Topic: Story Options: Playful Emotional Exploration of Stories in Groups

Date: Monday 6th December                Time: 10.00-12.00 (GMT)

Speaker: Aruna Gopakumar

We are all storytellers. We are the stories we tell.

This technique involves deep listening and imaginative re-telling of the client’s story by group members. The group members, as co-authors, help the client explore the emotional landscape of the story.

They stretch their imagination to explore many emotional interpretations of the same facts. In doing so, they help clients arrive at their core emotional experience and discover alternate frames of reference they had discounted or never imagined existed.

Topic: The Drama Triangle

Date: Tuesday 7th December                Time: 18.00-20.00 (GMT)

Speaker: Matthew Elton

The Drama Triangle makes sense of repeated patterns we get into with other people where we become caught up in the role of either Rescuer, Persecutor, or Victim. In this workshop we will look at how to use The Drama Triangle in the therapy room. How can it help clients make sense and move out of problematic patterns? We’ll also look at a key development of the theory, The Winner’s Triangle.
Like any powerful tool, The Drama Triangle can be harmful as well as helpful. So we will also explore how labels such as Victim, Persecutor, or Rescuer can be used – sometimes unwittingly – to box people in or to silence and oppress them.
In the workshop participants will be:
• Introduced to the Drama Triangle and The Winner’s Triangle
• Learn some practical ways of using the triangles with clients
• explore some connections with the Transactional Analysis concept of “discounting” and it’s complement “accounting”
• Discuss risks that come with the use of The Drama Triangle and its language of Victim, Rescuer, and Persecutor
The workshop will mix teaching with a breakout session for participants to explore their reactions to the ideas and try them out in some short exercises. No prior knowledge of The Drama Triangle will be assumed.

Topic: To be confirmed

Date: Monday 13th December               Time: 10.00-12.00 (GMT)

Speaker: Will Daniel-Braham

Details to follow shortly.

Topic: Fix Me/See Me: Using Spiral Dynamics as an Evaluation Tool in TA

Date: Tuesday 14th December                Time: 18.00-20.00 (GMT)

Speaker: Jon Skelton Pearson

How come some clients arrive at your door wanting to be ‘fixed’ and given ‘tools for the toolbox’ whilst others want to be seen, heard and celebrated? How do you react to these needs?

Spiral Dynamics Integral (SDI) offers a refreshing perspective on these questions by explaining how each of us sees the world the way we do. Using SDI, we can examine the ‘developmental altitude’ of ourselves and our clients and sharpen both our clinical practice and our self-understanding.

In this Workshop, Jon will be outlining SDI theory in easily-assimilable bite-sized chunks and applying it as an evaluation tool so that you can assess both your own developmental altitude, and that of your clients.
