While there are a small number of titles exploring Transactional Analysis in specific educational settings, there is no comprehensive account of this practical psychology for learning. Educational Transactional Analysis draws together a team of contributors from the international educational TA community, offering perspectives from Europe, India, South Africa, Australia, Japan and the United States to explain and illustrate the practice of this exciting development in education. Establishing a seminal overview that will make it the ‘go to’ text, the book covers four key sections: Philosophy, Politics, Principles & Educational Transactional Analysis The Identity of the Teacher Educational Transactional Analysis and Schooling Educational Transactional Analysis: Adult learning and community development Aimed at educators in all contexts, researchers, students and trainers, this book will be an essential resource for those that wish to deepen their understanding of educational TA or are involved in formal TA training.
Transactional Analysis (TA) has continued to grow and develop ever since its inception by the Canadian American psychiatrist Dr Eric Berne over a half century ago. It has proven itself to be an extremely useful model for human relations professionals working in a variety of contexts and fields, such as psychotherapy, coaching and counselling, management and organisational development, or parenting and education. TA combines an accessible theory on the development of people and systems with a practical approach, centred on the possibilities of change, growth and development. Into TA is a comprehensive textbook of contemporary TA in theory and practice. The first section of the book focusses on theory, presented so that both beginning and experienced professionals will find much of value. TA theory is then further integrated with other current models of psychology, education, and organisational consultation. The second section provides rich and stimulating examples of TA in practice that bring the theory to life.
