TA 101

Transactional Analysis

Transactional Analysis (TA) is both a theory of human personality and a system for the improvement of human relations. Its application to everyday living provides a systematic approach to understanding the links between human needs and behaviours and the ways that the individuals and families and organisations are effective or ineffective in solving their problems and enhancing their relationships. TA provides a comprehensive model to understand behavioural patterns, communication, interpersonal relationship, motivation, time management, attitudes, conflict management, and life span development for better living. The TA 101 workshop is specially adapted to meet the needs of various interest groups – trainers, facilitators, executives, managers, leaders, parents, teachers, students – who are interested in personal development and professional growth.
