Transactional Analysis offers us both a theory and a methodology, which are underpinned by a sound philosophy.

Through the decades there have been many changes within the Transactional Analysis community, one of them being the shift away from techniques and solution focused work towards working with the unconscious theories and practice.

In this MLL we will examine and explore the following:

• Definitions and understanding about the terms “tools and techniques” • An overview of approaches in Transactional Analysis-past and present • The changes and shifts through the decades within Transactional Analysis • The thinking behind some of these changes • What happened to the techniques from the 80’s? Have we thrown the baby out with the

bathwater? • How can we reincorporate some of the old techniques and methods into contemporary
thinking and practice?

It’s not what we do but how we think about what we do, and what our intentions are behind our actions.

2014: World TA Conference







TA NOW! a game changer

In the 50 years since Berne published Games People Play and founded the ITAA, we have grown from a small gathering in San Francisco to a global community where, at heart, our OK-OK philosophy still thrives.  Join us in sharing the research, theory, and tools that will launch transactional analysis into its next 50 years.  Join us in changing the games that still trouble our world today.  In organizations, education, and mental health, TA is a theory and practice we need now more than ever.
