Kako jedan TA terapeut vidi proces psihoterapije
So, What Do You Do To Help Me, Mr. Therapist?
Gregory J. Boyce, Psychotherapist
First, here's few topics/subjects
that keep walking through my office door.
Life style challenges:
weight loss, smoking, changing careers/jobs, starting new projects.
Phobias, Anxieties, Fears, Obsessions, Compulsions
Blaming, Shame, Anger, Hate
So if you see yourself
on this list, I'm experienced and skilled enough to offer some help. I do in-person sessions . Sessions are 50 minutes.
techniques: Most of my clients don't know, don't care,
and don't ask what techniques I'm using or why. They only care if they see results in themselves this week compared to last
week according to their goals. When you take your car into the garage for a tune-up do you care what computer the guy is using
to tune your ignition?
Yes Techniques: If you want the details, read the sections on TA, Cognitive Therapy, Re-Decision
Therapy, Hypnotherapy, and Emotional Freedom Technique because that's what I use. I mix and match as I deem appropriate, plus
I invite clients to do Mission Possibles (homework). I see a person for an hour out of 168 in their week so they need to do
stuff outside the session.
The First Session
or Test Drive A Psychotherapist: You tell me why you're
talking to me. I take notes and ask questions. Then I tell you a bit about myself and the techniques. I give an overview of
what you've told me from a TA and/or CBT perspective and describe a treatment plan you could consider. Then I ask if you'd
like to do that, and book another session. If so I invite you to think about and write down the specific changes (ie. therapeutic
goals) you want to make. That's your first mission possible.
The Second Session: This is devoted to clarifying your goals - Therapy
Goals or a Contract for Change. And if time permits, we start on goal number one.
Normal Sessions: Each session starts with setting an agenda for the hour. We review missions
(homework), attend to anything immediate that's troubling you and/or proceed with your goals. At the end I suggest another
(homework), and ask for any comments you have about the session.
Final Session: We talk about on-going support, back-up plans, and how you can celebrate what

Transactional analysis is
a powerful tool to bring about human well being. In psychotherapy, transactional analysis utilizes a contract for specific
changes desired by the client and involves the "Adult" in both the client and the clinician to sort out behaviors, emotions
and thoughts that prevent the development of full human potential. Transactional analysts intervene as they work with clients
in a safe, protective, mutually respectful-OK/OK--- environment to eliminate dysfunctional behaviors and establish and reinforce
positive relationship styles and healthy functioning. Transactional analysts are able to use the many tools of psychotherapy,
ranging from psychodynamic to cognitive behavioral methods in effective and potent ways. Examples of transactional analysis
psychotherapy can bee seen in our Master Therapists series, the Ellyn Bader and Peter Pearson Couples Therapy .
Counselors who utilize
transactional analysis work contractually on solving "here and now" problems. Counseling work focuses on creating productive
problem solving behaviors. Using transactional analysis, counselor's establish an egalitarian, safe and mutually respectful
working relationship with their clients. This working relationship provides tools clients can utilize in their day-to-day
functions to improve the quality of their lives.
is a practical educational psychology that offers a way of transforming educational philosophy and principles into everyday
practice. TA concepts provide a flexible and creative approach to understanding how people function and to the connections
between human behaviour, learning and education. Teaching them to both teachers and students is a process of empowerment,
enhancing effective methods of interaction and mutual recognition.
Educational TA is
both preventive and restorative. TA concepts are developed and used with people of all ages and stages of development in their
various social settings. The aim is to increase personal autonomy, to support people in developing their own personal and
professional philosophies and to enable optimum psychological health and growth.
The key philosophical
concepts that underpin Educational TA are:
educators offer empathic acceptance of all human beings as people together with respect for their dignity. These qualities
are at the heart of successful learning relationships.
at any age and stage can learn to take responsibility for their own decisions and actions.
difficulties can be addressed effectively with co-operative goodwill and a coherent theoretical framework that makes sense
of the human dynamics involved.
The process of educational
TA is contractual, so that all parties know where they stand, and what agreements have been made for what purposes. Throughout
the process the ideas and methods of TA are used openly to promote informed co-operation and the sharing of power between
TA can be used to
address important issues in:
and continuing teacher education
climate and culture
and educational needs
morale and teacher well-being
to learning and teaching
Above all educational
TA is invaluable in helping people to thrive and in promoting healthy and effective learning in a wide variety of contexts.
is a powerful tool in the hands of organizational development specialists. Through presenting the basic concepts of transactional
analysis and using it as the basic theory to undergird the objectives of their clients, organizational development specialists
build a common strategy with which to address the particular needs of organizations and to build a functional relationship,
as well as eliminate dysfunctional organizational behaviors.
Examples of transactional analysis
in Organizations can be seen in our videos: Conflict Management by George Kohlreiser and Breaking the Communication Barrier
by Abe Wagner.
