TA Training can lead to qualification as a Certified Transaction Analyst

Training in Bucharest and online.

TA training at YTCi is for professional and personal development which can lead to internationally recognised qualification as a Certified Transactional Analyst in the field of psychotherapy or in the TA field of counselling (which covers coaching / leadership / conflict resolution / team development as well as psycho-social counselling for personal development).

Using TA philosophy and practice we create a supportive atmosphere in which you can safely develop professionally and personally. Providing you with an opportunity to reflect on your professional practice and to develop your professional skills and techniques.  

TA training is focused on professional and personal development. 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 develop your skills and competence in TA analysis, using a contractual approach, to develop strategies for planning psychotherapeutic / coaching interventions effectively when working with individuals, couples and groups.

The stages of learning can be described as gaining knowledge, understanding and then applying the ideas in practice - this process is the focus of the foundation course. As you develop your practice you integrate different TA concepts into your personal style, learning to assess the effectiveness of your interventions which is the focus of the advanced professional development group and exam preparation group.

All of the training is process orientated, offering you the opportunity for personal reflection on areas which have an impact on your professional work. Read the description of the aims and methodology of TA training at YTCi - pdf file

Six stages of training and development in the learning process: In this model the first three areas are seen as beginning stages, with the second three stages as being advanced. This model is based on an article by Bruce Loria 1983 TAJ, in which he quotes early educational works.

Advanced professional development and preparing for qualification as a CTA

What is actually required to practice as a psychotherapist in Romania?  

In Romania the training can be used to register with CPR “to practice psychotherapy under supervision” and after qualification as a CTA to become an autonomous practitioner.

There is often much confusion and miss-information regarding the requirements and process for applying for certification to practice under supervision in Romania - therefore YTCi has created this pdf description of all the requirements along with a description of the relationship between the various professional bodies and a description of the process of application - along with the relevant links to follow. YTCi uses the information received from ARAT regarding requirements for recognition in Romania: Trainees are responsible for ensuring that they fulfil the current requirements by both ARAT and other professional bodies within Romania. It is also important to note that the requirements continue to be developed and so check with the Professional Practice Committee in ARAT for the latest details.
