LIFESTYLES AND STROKES STYLES

Organization/All

Italian, English Translation

How quickly to recognize the lifestyle and the stroke style? How to return to our client useful information about his strengths and weaknesses to improve relationships? We asked ourselves these questions in a organizational field counselling; a working group was created that drafted a Drivers Questionnaire and a Stroke Questionnaire. We have given it to our customers and then verified, noting its usefulness in the various fields. We will discuss the questionnaires together and see their application.

METHODS AND PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF TA WITH CHILDREN PSYCHOTHERAPY

During the workshop, there will be an introductory theoretical part, then, through clinical cases, it will be shown the TA method with regard to neurosis and depression.

CAN WE AS TA PSYCHOTHERAPIST BE MORE FLEXIBLE ON HOW DIRECTIVE WE ARE IN THE WORK WITH CLIENTS AND HOW WE USE UNCONSCIOUS CLIENT MATERIAL AND WHY WOULD WE CHOOSE THAT? INTEGRATING PLAY THERAPY DIMENSIONS MODEL AND TA

Psychotherapy/All

English

Play therapy dimensions model presents interaction of two dimensions that can be followed regarding to psychotherapy process. One dimension is continuum of therapists directiveness toward client, and the other dimension is continuum of consciousness, which describes level of clients awareness of his inner world and how he presents it to the therapist. Berne presented the idea that therapist’s role is to reach a bilateral agreement and in doing that to help the client to become aware of his inner processes and to make it more conscious. In play therapy, techniques that are used often address client’s unconscious level and for reaching therapeutic goal it is not necessary to work with client’s consciousness about presenting problem. We have successfully used the combination of both approaches in our work with children, adolescents and adults and this is what we want to present in this workshop. We also want to explore these theories through your practical examples. We will explore how we can think about these two dimensions in terms of TA theory and techniques offering a broader perspective of TA practice.

ROSEMARY NAPPER, TSTA (ORGANISATIONS, EDUCATION, COUNSELLING) (UK)

ORGANISATIONAL CONSULTANCY:BEING A CULTURAL ANTHROPOLOGIST 

Organizations/ All

English

In order to assess the real needs of an organization it is valuable to inhabit the role of an anthropologist……and become a participant-observer phenomenologically noticing what is going on in the Structures and Dynamics of the organization which create the current culture. This workshop will examine this process of phenomenological noticing through a TA lens - and touch on the enquiry through discovery sessions with individuals as well as focus groups which can then be mapped onto Berne’s model of organizational culture. This workshop will interest those who work as internal or external consultants in organizations - and will also be of interest to Educators of adults as it will involve learning processes in a constructionist framework, and based on experiential learning

Biography: I work on all continents providing TA learning for facilitators and trainers, coaches, counsellors, consultants  and leaders, using emergent design processes. I provide a 4 year training (460 hours) in each of these TA fields in Oxford in UK. I also work with a range from  global to start-up organizations as an OD consultant. I have published chapters on TA and coaching (in LifeScripts ed Erskine etc; in the Coaching Handbook ed Cox et al) and the book TACTICS with Trudi Newton about how TA can inform the learning process. There  also have articles in the TAJ on Supervision and on Positive Psychology and other topics. I passionately believe that TA is a  psychology  applied to each of the TA fields of practice, which each have a unique frame of reference and I encourage transactional analysts to value  such difference.

EROS AND THANATOS IN SCRIPT DEVELOPMENT

Counselling/ All

English

In this workshop we will discuss the forces at work in the evolutionary movement of script, between on one hand the hope for a better future and on the other hand the call of the past and the well known. Within this tension we will consider the importance of acknowledging the necessary mourning involved in growth. All too often, the focus on change is on the excitment of new discovery and new behaviours. However, when loosening one's defenses, there is a complex process involved. As we aspire to our goals our stimulation hunger is satisfied. Yet at the same time one's need for structure, in terms of known defenses is activated, thus there are struggles between the competing forces of these two hungers. It is then essential to acknowledge the recognition hunger, validating and normalizing the losses as well as the gains, the grief as well as the hope, in the here and now. The workshop will include didactic discussion and experiential work.

JULIE HAY, TSTA IN ALL 4 FIELDS  (UK)

USING TA AS A PROFESSIONAL PRACTITIONER: HOW WE ENCOURAGE AUTONOMY IN OUR DIFFERENT FIELDS

All fields/All

The title of this workshop uses the term practitioner deliberately, because I will be inviting you to explore the similarities as well as the differences between how we apply TA as psychotherapists, coaches, counsellors, consultants, educators …… looking at how constructivist TA means we are all helping clients change how they make meaning, how cocreativity means we cannot not influence our client.

TELL ME HOW DO YOU RELAX AND I'LL TELL WHO YOU ARE. REST AS A REFLECTION OF A LIFE SCRIPT

Psychotherapry/ Beginner

Russian, English Translation

Rest is an important part of human life. Unfortunately, according to our observations, not everyone is able to rest. Using the concepts of transactional analysis, we will examine this topic. At the workshop, we are going to analyze parents' messages and our own thoughts about rest, contemplate our own attitude on rest by analyzing proverbs and sayings and conduct decontamination of the Adult state.

COLLECTIVE IDENTITY: GROUP AND INTERGROUP DYNAMICS PERSPECTIVE

Psychotherapry/Advanced

English

We will look at the concept of collective identity, which represents part of individual’s personal identity that originates from internalised representations and relatedness associated with groups. Both group and intergroup processes have their own distinct dynamics which cannot be derived solely from interpersonal and intrapsychic processes. Collective identity encompasses these processes.

PSYCHOTHERAPY ONLINE. ETHICAL ISSUES.

Psychotherapry/All

English

The proliferation and development of the Internet poses serious ethical and practical issues for psychotherapists. This applies directly to working with online clients, and working face-to-face, in which there is the inclusion of online work (via email, mutual visibility of the client and therapist in social networks, etc.) The difference in work on video is that it starts with a contract. This is especially true of the administrative side of the issue, as a tool for creating and maintaining the boundaries of therapy. Self-presentation and specialist behavior in the Internet space are also connected with the boundaries of therapy; this may affect therapy with each specific client. I will consider these issues at the workshop

SCRIPT WORK WITH HORSE COMPANIONS: INCREASING STABILITY AND COMPOSURE IN THE HERE AND NOW

Organizations/ Advanced

English

We seek and need stability and composure especially in situations of upheaval and change, professionally and privately. In these situations, we automatically use familiar problem-solving patterns, only realizing in retrospect that they did not work in an optimal way. For several years now, we have experienced the extraordinary effectiveness of coaching with horse-assisted interventions. Horses invite us to increase our authenticity in contact.  Whereas they give support and stability, they also demand composure. With their help, old problem-solving patterns can be changed in a caring way. We used this modern method in TA script-workshops and coachings and have achieved remarkable results.

This workshop is meant for colleagues who already use animal-assisted methods, but also for those interested in supplementary methods applicable to script work. I will introduce our workshop-concept, will show photos and videos illustrating the process and will reflect procedure and results with you.

THE TA IMAGINARY - IMAGINATION IN PRACTICE

REVISITING THE TA, THE APPROACH TO THE SYMPTOM, MEANING OF THE SCRIPT AND HOMEOSTATIC FUNCTION OF THE GAMES IN A DYNAMIC EXPERIENTIAL PERSPECTIVE

Psychotherapy /All

Italian, English Translation

From symptom to a Script deep analysis: an innovative way to manage psychological disease.
Exploring the "surrounding environment" to the symptom, we discuss a procedure, derived from the analysis of the advantages of games, to quickly focus on the different "wants" that contend psychic experiences. The guiding idea is that the symptom has a homeostatic function. The work allows us to identify the frame of the psychological contract from the first meetings. The exposure of clinical cases allows you to see work in action.

MY PERSONAL STYLE OF LEADERSHIP. THE ROLE OF EGO STATES IN BUSINESS
