Course Information

Course content

Discover the theories of Transactional Analysis; a psychological model of personality and communication developed by Eric Berne for understanding how humans develop, behave, communicate and interact with each other. Once you understand how you behave in certain situations and why, you can then make your interactions with others more pleasant and effective.

We cover the answers to common psychological questions, such as:

  • “Why do I act like my mum or dad? Or “Why do I feel like a little kid again?”  (Ego states)

  • “Do I sense the car crash coming in this conversation?” (Psychological games)

  • “Why do I keep on making the same mistakes?” (Life scripts)

  • “What is going on in this conversation?” (Transactions)

But that’s not all. View the official course content in full on the on the EATA website.

The course takes just 12 hours (2 days) to complete and is taught over one weekend meaning you can fit learning around your existing commitments.

We limit the number places on the TA101 course to make sure every attendee gets the most out of the course. Our small group sizes mean you get personalised support from your tutors and lots of time for discussion with others, individual feedback and personal reflection. The TA101 course is practical and interactive, enabling you to put what you are learning straight into practice.

With our face to face TA101 course, you won’t be stuck in a classroom staring at a whiteboard all weekend. We teach the course at the Mercure Leeds Parkway Hotel in North West Leeds – a warm, informal setting in beautiful parkland. It has plenty of parking and is on main bus routes from Leeds.
