Human behaviour and communication can be very complex and can easily be misread. This course helps students understand their own and others' motivation.

Transactional Analysis is a model for understanding relationships, communication and human behaviour. Created by Eric Berne in the 1950s (author of the best-selling book Games People Play), TA is now widely used in education, psychotherapy, management and many other areas.

This course will introduce some of the main concepts of TA including: life script, psychological games, ego states and transactions. We will look at how to relate these concepts to others and ourselves and identify alternative options for our behaviour and communication.

Participants will be invited to use the theory presented to reflect on their own process. There will be a combination of teaching, discussion, practical excercise and time for reflection.

This course is a great starting point for those considering a career in counselling and psychotherapy.

Course tutors: Leilani Mitchell

Recognition: On completion students will be awarded an internationally recognised certificate by the UKATA (UK Association for Transactional Analysis formerly the ITA)

"The teachers were fantastic." M Vinuesa

"ACT has given me some brilliant tools to exercise my own skills in acting. Just the right amount of play, humour and challenge to make it really safe as well as being challenging enough to make me expand my capabilities. I have enjoyed every moment and would highly recommend this work and its teachers." C Carey

An opportunity to take your acting skills to the next level.

Stanislavski into Shakespeare

Monday 8th to Friday 12th September 2014

This is an exciting and experimental week looking at how we might apply Stanislavski's approach to Shakespeare's texts. John Barton's view on acting Shakespeare was that 'the actor must be rooted in nature' and start with the thoughts and the meaning. This week will look at how we can use some of Stanislavski's fundamental tools to unlock those thoughts and meanings.
