Transactional Analysis - An introduction

Transactional Analysis or TA as it’s commonly known, is one of my preferred therapeutic approaches.  Over the coming blog posts we shall look at some of the core concepts of TA psychotherapy including:

  • Life Positions

  • Ego States

  • Drivers

  • Injunctions

  • Strokes

  • Rackets

  • Games

  • Life Scripts

I will only be giving a brief overview of each concept, but if you would like to find out more, I recommend the following books:
