                            Official TA 101
        A two-day introduction to Transactional Analysis

Transactional Analysis offers a stimulating, clear and systematic theory of
personality, communication and child development. It is a powerful tool in
identifying problems and facilitating change and is used successfully in
psychotherapy, counselling, education and organisations.
This two-day course introduces you to some of the concepts of TA and
provides an understanding of the philosophy and basic theory, which underpin
TA counselling, psychotherapy, and its use in education and organisations.
Course participants will have an opportunity to explore both didactically and
experientially their own personality and relationships. Topics covered will
include life scripts, ego states, strokes, transactions (the ways that we
communicate with others), and psychological games analysis.
The course will be particularly helpful to anyone in one of the helping
professions, teaching or management who wants to understand more about
who they are, what they do and why they do it.
Attendance on these two days will entitle participants to receive an official 101
Certificate. The TA 101 is a necessary prerequisite for anyone wishing to
engage in further TA training.

                            others.

FORMAT:                      Each training weekend includes a topic of TA
                             theory and its applications. Experiential work
                             and skills training will support learning.



                                                                             5
Advanced Training Weekends.

These take place over eight weekends per year on Saturday and Sunday,
9.30 am – 5.30 pm between October and May, and provide 14 advanced
training hours per weekend. Each training weekend includes didactic teaching
on a topic of TA theory relevant to the stage of training, pair work and small
group discussion.
There is an emphasis on group co-operation and involvement and so some
time each weekend is used to explore the training group process.

Ethos of the Course.

The aim of the trainers is to provide both a stimulating and varied learning
experience and to offer flexibility in their approach to teaching. They place an
emphasis on an interactive and supportive relationship between the trainees
and trainers and therefore the training group size is limited and rarely exceeds
12 members. There are ongoing opportunities for trainees to discuss their
progress. Trainees are expected to read relevant theory alongside the training
course and to take full responsibility for their own learning process.

Skills Training.

Each training weekend will include skills training in the clinical application of
the theory topic. This will include experiential learning through role play and
live work in the group.

Supervised Clinical Work.

Application of TA theory to clinical practice is an important part of the course.
Trainees are expected to establish a counselling placement during the first
year of the course if they are not already working with clients within the
helping professions. Trainees will be allocated to a supervision group of 2 or 3
trainees who will meet on a monthly basis to discuss the application of TA
theory to their clinical cases. Individual supervision is also available.

Personal Therapy.

The Institute of Transactional Analysis and the Humanistic and Integrative
section of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy require that trainee
psychotherapists will experience psychotherapy of the type, frequency and
duration similar to that to which they intend offering their clients. This means
that trainees will be expected to undergo individual and / or group
psychotherapy with a qualified TA psychotherapist throughout the course.



                                                                                6
Written Assignments.
These are different for each year. Please see under the syllabus for each
year.

Mental Health Familiarisation Placement.
A mental health placement is required for those trainees without relevant
previous experience. Its aim is for trainees to gain a basic understanding of
current psychiatric practice in this country. This will normally take place during
the third year of training.

Assessment Procedure.
Trainees are assessed throughout the course and progression from one year
to the next is not automatic. Assessment consists of the following: written
assignments, annual feedback sheets on training and clinical practice, self
and peer group assessments. In addition, informal feedback will be given
during training and supervision and trainees are encouraged to discuss their
progress at any time with their trainer or supervisor. Trainees also have the
opportunity to give feedback on the course at the end of each year.

Registration with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy requires a combined total of 900 hours of
theory, skills training and supervision. Depending on attendance, some
trainees will need to undertake some additional TA workshops and/or
supervision to fulfil the requirements.

Code of Ethics and Code of Professional Practice.
All trainees and trainers of Leeds Psychotherapy Training Institute are
members of the Institute of Transactional Analysis and therefore are expected
to adhere to the Code of Ethics and the Code of Professional Practice of the
ITA.

Training Contracts.
Trainees who have reached a safe level of beginning competence are offered
a Training Contract. The Training Contract is a commitment on the part of the
trainer to support the trainee through to examination, and a commitment on
the part of the trainee to undertake the necessary training in order to qualify
as a Certified Transactional Analyst. Contractual trainees are able to advertise
and offer their services as ‘In clinical training as Transactional Analysts’ and
charge a fee commensurate with their experience.




                                                                                 7

Level 1 Examination as a Certified Transactional Analyst.
The Level 1 examination of the European Association of Transactional
Analysis requires a written case study with essays on the theory and practice
of TA along with a professional profile and an account of learning experiences
during training. A passing paper enables the candidate to go on to oral
examination where the candidate presents their clinical work to a board of
examiners.

Trainees may take their final examinations at any time after the end of the
course providing that they have fulfilled all the training requirements of the
European Association of Transactional Analysis and the UK Council for
Psychotherapy. They must also maintain their membership of The Institute of
Transactional Analysis, remain contractual trainees, continue with personal
therapy and stay in regular supervision with their sponsor at a frequency to
meet current training requirements.


Masters Award in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy.

This is awarded by Leeds Metropolitan University on successful completion of
the Post-Graduate Certificate and Diploma in TA Psychotherapy, and both the
written and oral components of the Certified Transactional Analysis
examinations.


Entry by Accreditation of Prior Learning.

It is possible to enter the psychotherapy training programme or the Masters
Award in TA Psychotherapy at any point by accrediting any previous hours of
training and supervision in TA. For further details see the entry requirements
for each course, or contact the Director of Training at Leeds Psychotherapy
Training Institute.
