Note: We are still offering Living TA workshops in the current emergency. They will be held online using simple video sharing software. The April session will be shorter (10:00 – 1:00) and at half the normal price. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. If you wish to book a place, you will be sent an invitation which will allow you to join.
This is our popular programme of ‘Living TA’ workshops, focussing on personal development and the application of TA to everyday life and the wider community.
Each month, this small group comes together to reflect on, and analyse, their personal and/or professional lives, relationships and ways in which TA gives us theories to understand ourselves and others. The workshops provide space for didactic teaching and group involvement, with emphasis on collective growth, mutual learning and belonging.
Eligibility for Entry We recognise that advanced TA training is not for everyone and that many people complete a TA101 or Foundation Year and want to continue developing their understanding of TA. Therefore, we welcome applications from anyone who has completed either of these two courses. This is so that we can share a TA language. It is possible to attend individual workshops, several workshops, or all of them.
The workshops are led by Debbie Jelpke PTSTA(P) and Annette Terry PTSTA(P).
Annette runs her private practice in Loughborough, Leicestershire where she works creatively with therapy clients and supervisees. She is interested in the energy that is stimulated within groups when they come together to learn.
Debbie has had a private therapy practice for over fifteen years in Nottingham and has been enjoying working as a trainer for the last few years. She is also a Mindfulness teacher and enjoys bringing Mindfulness and TA together.
Cost £800 for all ten sessions (£80/day) or £90 per individual workshop.
Dates 24 September 2020, 22 October, 19 November, 17 December, 14 January 2021, 11 February, 11 March, 15 April, 20 May, 17 June.
