Research is an area we in TA need to focus on - we are often accused of not having enough evidence to support our claims about the efficacy of Transactional Analysis models and methods.
This module is to introduce the participants to a range of research methodologies which will equip them with the cognitive awareness and understanding in order to undertake their own research study. This is a core model for those studying at Diploma level.
The learning aims for students will include the ability to compare, contrast and critique:
Day 1 - exploration of TA theory and application in a professional role
Day 2 - supervision, discussion, exam preparation - you set the agenda
The theory day is very interactive, with input and discussion, activities for exploration and for action. All participants are invited to share their knowledge and expertise and syndicate groups will allow for sharing, discovery, challenge and growth while learning together.
The supervision day that follows, is a place for the participants to create the agenda. Opportunities to give and receive supervision, to run a teach for feedback, to guide a discussion on theory or to explore a new exercise you have designed. Each session will be followed by a process review where possible, which offers an opportunity to practice our skills of analysis and reflection, for sharing our process and for deepening our knowledge of theory.
