Part 2 – Transactional Analysis
Transactional analysis (TA) is a form of psychotherapy, counselling and education, based on cognitive and personal values. Its aim is to lead clients through pre-determined steps to achieve personal growth and change.
TA also offers a theory of child development using life scripts to explain how adult life patterns have originated in early childhood.
The philosophy of TA is that people are OK and everyone has the capacity to think and make choices. TA is a contractual psychotherapeutic approach where both the client and the therapist take joint responsibility for achieving positive outcomes. TA keeps open communication between a client and a therapist by both being fully informed about what is going on in their work together.
On completion of this introduction to Solution Focussed Therapy and TA unit, the participant should feel confident to assist the client with planning of goals and future outcomes.
