WORKSHOPS

 

11.15 am - 12.45 pm

 

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

THE KEY TO COACHING: ROLES

Counseling/ All

Englishр

I understand the purpose of coaching is to support individuals in recognising and realising their potential in each of their roles. The concepts of Bernd Schmid TSTA O&P (which won the EMBA in 2007) which extend the ego state model, add a new dimension to TA which is especially valuable in counselling contexts including coaching, where difficulties in people work or wider lives are often because of a clash or confusion or a contamination of roles. I have developed a powerful way to rapidly embrace these theoretical ideas with individuals which is in a playful form of a Bernean confrontation - revealing the inconsistencies in the individuals constructs and thereby indicating  a way forward. As well as being of interest to coaches, mentors, managers and OD consultants, this workshop is also likely to be of interest to educators as it will demonstrate a constructivist way of 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 Life Scripts 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.

USING THE METAPHOR IN THE TRANSACTIONAL ANALYTIC FIELD

Psychotherapy /Advanced

Italian, English Translation

The workshop focuses on some elements of Bion's influence on the Berne’s theory. In particular, the relationship between the metaphor of the transactional analytic field and the concept of ego states in an intersubjective context. The use of metaphor will be deepened as an intervention aimed to developing the process from intuition to thinking both in the therapeutic relationship and in the supervision relationship.

 

BERIT FAHLÉN, PTSTA (P) (Sweden)

WORKING WITH PHOTOS IN A CO-CREATIVE AND NARRATIVE WAY

Psychotherapry/ All

English

I´m using photos, as a technique, to create new stories and narratives from our memories. By giving a story a new meaning, you create a possibility to transform your script. Inspired by Co-creative TA, my intention is to work together, in a ”We-ness” and in the present with the participants.

TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS AND ATTACHMENT DISORDER, LOVE AS A RAPTURE

Psychotherapy /All

Italian, English Translation

Teseo is 22 years old and has a social phobia. Lives in the family, the mother is a housewife, hyper-affective and anxious. The father is not very present and often cheats on his wife. Already at the age of the kindergarten Teseo is afraid of friends, he is silent and clumsy and few want to play with him. His mother does not take him to school. Theirs is a Racketeering and Teseo reports that the father intervenes despising his behavior. At the age of 21 Teseo falls in love with Venere, and with her he uses the same dysfunctional symbiosis used with his mother. When the relationship breaks up, Teseo has difficulty in developing detachment. On the one hand he wants to indulge in fusion; on the other, he feels an aggressive impulse that blocks him and he believes that letting himself go would risk to depend and lose value. The analysis allows Teseo to structure a new belief system with the help of which to balance the need for bonds and for identity. The main TA concepts used are: Ego States, contract, discounting and symbiosis, logic and comparison, the analysis of the environment close to the symptom, the awareness of the drive system (Gaudieri).

 

TATIANA GOGOLEVA, TRAINEE FOR CTA (P) (Russia)

ACCESS TO AUTHENTIC FEELINGS OF SCHIZOPHRENIC PATIENTS THROUGH THERAPY BY MEANS OF SPIRITUAL CULTURE AND THEORY OF EGO-STATES.

Psychotherapry/ All

English

The native original method of therapy by means of creative self-expression is especially effective with working on access to actual emotions. Schizophrenic patients have mostly no contact to their either racket or authentic feelings.The result of therapy of this kind is a clear feeling and understanding of your own, personal precious pushes apart the senseless amorphous mess of mental disorder. The patients with endogenic process get stable spiritual remission, with personality disorders get stable compensation.

PSYCHOLOGY AND SCHOOL: WHICH INTERVENTIONS? THEORETICAL REFLECTION AND EXPERIMENTATION OF AN INTEGRATED APPROACH: PSYCHOLOGY OF HEALTH AND TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS

Education /All

Italian, English Translation

Dealing in schools in an integrated way with parents, teachers, students and school staff, to promote the improvement of psychosocial skills in various contexts. The Life Skills model positively influences the perception of self and others. These are prerequisites for health promotion. Pupils' involvement in a dynamic teaching and learning process translates knowledge, attitudes and values into skills. Life Skills are mainly training and there is the risk of reduced transformative capacity in the medium and long term. The meeting between the LS Education with the TA expands the horizon and makes the practices in educational contexts more effective. School planning must start from the assessment of the needs of all the people involved with young people, and this generates circularity between the "change agents" and the objectives. Skills are a reflective approach, and any change agent can exercise responsibility with respect to discomfort. The development of young people is a shared responsibility, by the Skills the subject can focus his Script and intervene on injunctions and permits, favoring well-being. The processes of change are entrusted to the school as a whole

COUNSELING AND PSYCHOSOMATIC TREATMENTS: "TELL ME HOW YOU FEEL AND ASK YOURSELF HOW YOU WANT TO FEEL"

Counselling/All

Italian, English Translation

The experience of an individual counseling course in combination with psychosomatic body treatments performed by a holistic operator specialized in naturopathy. Recently we have seen how our feelings reflect on our being. People who turn to a counselor to solve a temporary situation of difficulty brings with them a feeling that is not only emotional. It's also a feeling of the body.

RE-INTERPRETING INTERPRETATION: PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS OF TA FOR WORKING WITH PEOPLE WITH DIAGNOSES OF PERSONALITY DISORDER.

Psychotherapy/ Advanced

English

We will offer a modern view of the original Berne’s meaning of Interpretation, to clarify its meaning and to show how it can be applied successfully and practically. We’ll show how interpretation has its roots in the psycho-dynamic approach and will demonstrate how it can be a useful tool to work with archaic ego structures, and issues of attachment, loss and separation/individuation.

OKNESS: A BRIDGE BETWEEN TEMPERAMENT AND IDENTITY

 Psychotherapy/ All

Italian, English

What is okness in the therapeutic relationship?

Berne defined it as an the  awareness of the value and dignity of the others. The authors intend to clarify what and how to use in the therapy  to "see the other person becoming aware of it as a phenomenon, exist for him/her and be ready for him/her to exist for us” (Berne 1979). Through reflections on their clinical practice, they develop a methodology and an intervention strategy based on the okness.

This will be done starting from the concept of temperament according to Cloninger, identifying the temperamental needs and integrating them with the analysis of the impasse and the identity levels of C. Moiso. The authors will use a clinical example of treating anxiety disorder.

THE DIAGNOSTICS OF EMOTIONAL HUNGERS OF PARENTS. PRESENTATION OF AUTHOR'S TECHNIQUE

Psychotherapy/ All

English

I`m glad to present my own methodology for diagnosing emotional hungers of parents, who have plenty of problems in relations with their children. My workshop is based on the concept by Eric Berne about three emotional needs: stimulus, recognotion and structure. Besides I`m inspired by Jean Illsley Clarke`s concept about the effect of emotional hungers on children`s behavior.

BOGDAN SERBANESCU, PTSTA (O) (Romania)

OK-NESS: DREAM OR REALITY?

Organizations/ All

English

Transactional Analysis is a hippie psychology. As such, its fundamental belief is that all people are OK. In the absence of this core principle, all the others won’t work. The concept is simple, but deceivingly so. It has evolved and developed from Berne and Ernst to 5 entities directly or indirectly involved in the interaction and from the 4 positions of “OK  Corral” to the 12 identified until now. And things get even more interesting when applied in an organizational setting. The workshop will explore these aspects of the simplest and yet most subtle TA model, together with some organizational applications.

 

JACQUELINE VAN GENT, TSTA (C) (Netherlands)

I WILL START TOMORROW. (PROCRASTINATION: WHAT IS IT, WHY DO WE DO IT AND HOW CAN WE STOP OURSELVES DOING IT?)

Counselling/All

In this interactive workshop we investigate script patterns that are related to procrastination behaviour and we offer tools (both TA and non-TA) that may help us to increase autonomous behaviour. Research has identified procrastination as one of the huge and still growing issues for people (especially students) leading a busy life and one of the main reasons why people are less effective, successful or happy than they would be if they were not procrastinating.

 

JULIE HAY, TSTA IN ALL 4 FIELDS (UK)

UNDERSTANDING CLASSROOM DYNAMICS

All fields/All

English

Personal styles, motivational styles, working styles, learning styles, contact styles – and leadership styles in the classroom., Or, if you prefer the TA jargon, behavioural ego states, stroking patterns, drivers, doors to contact and a simplified version of process communication, all focused on what needs to happen when we are educating people.

WORKING WITH TEENAGERS: FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS AND SYMBIOSIS MANAGEMENT

Psychotherapry /All

Italian, English Translation

I have been working with adolescents for a long time, they are often closed to peers or parents and lead to isolation, depression and suicidal ideation. Perceiving the world differently from how they wish, together with grandiose expectations, leads them to idealize a world of fantasy. Some common characteristics are: the desire to be heard, the frustration of not having adequate space in the family, the desire to be guided, the need to be independent, the inability to manage the often ambivalent relationship with parents. I clashed with the right of the parent to know the discomforts of the children and the duty to confidentiality and alliance with the patients. I continually look for "ad hoc" strategies, to take into account both needs. We are used to being "tested" by patients; teenagers continually test if we slip into a known parenting position. The risk is to get rid of the parenting relationship or to look like the real parent. The literature tells us to Join, Compare and Interrupt the symbiosis at different times, at CePAT we intervene along the same time axis and this helps to manage the issues of identification and separation. Clinical cases follow…

INVESTIGATION AND PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE IMPACT OF A THIRD (A DOG) IN THE ROOM

Psychotherapy/All

English

This workshop will explore what happens when we change the theraputic room dynamic, intentionally. Using ego states, we usually have a ‘group’ of people in the room; in this workshop I will assist in developing learning about how to successfully work with an actual ‘other’ in the room. This will take the form of a dog as a part of the theraputic process and not just an innate bystander.

Drawing from my extensive work in this area and from my book Delving Deeper: Understanding Diverse Approaches while Exploring Psychotherapy to evoke, through the ego states, the meaning and impact an animal has on the client. 

Considerations discussed, along with practical, hands on learning and teaching are:

When to bring a Third into the room

What happens when we physically bring a Third into the room

How to introduce a Third to room

    ii).    for the practitioner

    iii).    for the client
