In 2024 there will be an advanced professional development TA training group meeting in Bucharest. The minimum requirement for entry to the group is completion of the YTCi TA foundation course or equivalent. If you wish to join this group, but are not sure if you are ready, please discuss your personal situation with Dave.

Using TA philosophy and practice YTCi trainers will create a supportive atmosphere in which you can safely develop both professionally and personally. TA training is focused on professional and personal growth. The workshops include theoretical input, discussions, supervision and self experience. You will learn TA concepts and methodology and apply the theory to your professional practice. You will have opportunity for using the TA approaches within the group and for receiving supervision of your professional practice.

Preparing for qualification as a Transactional Analyst is process orientated and competency-based offering you the opportunity for personal and professional reflection.

Many attend TA training without intending to take the CTA qualification but are interested in using TA professionally and personally. If you are in this position you are welcome to join this group and to explore how the group can best meet your requirements.
