Event Details

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy with Transactional Analysis:

working with narrative experience, groups and dreams

A one-day seminar with Dr Anna Emanuela Tangolo

London, June 9th 2017, Friday

10:00AM to 4:00PM


Therapy with Transactional Analysis (TA) can be viewed as an integration between a cognitive and contractual dimension and a psychodynamic dimension. Within the cognitive space, therapy is aimed at developing an equal relationship between the client and the therapist, while the psychodynamic dimension allows for the client and therapist to undertake profound experiences of internal emotional restoration and renovation.

At this therapeutically oriented seminar, which would be especially relevant for psychotherapists, counsellors and clinical psychologists, we consider psychotherapy with TA through three important components:

  • Working with the narrative experience
  • Therapeutic interventions for both individual and group settings
  • The significance of dreams in TA

By highlighting the practical efficacy of psychodynamic psychotherapy that integrates with TA and through illustrative case examples, the seminar helps us comprehend how:

  • The four key concepts of TA psychotherapy:
    • o   the ego state model,
    • o   the concept of the script,
    • o   transactions and
    • o   games

facilitate situating the client within a diagnostic frame of reference and developing a therapeutic plan

  • We can identify the client’s main conflict from some of our earliest interactions
  • As therapists using TA – we cannot simply read a client’s language and emotions, we need to utilize these to rid our clients of contradictions, ominous influences of past messages and pathological introjections
  • We can integrate essential TA skills into our therapeutic work: interrogation, specification, confrontation, explanation, illustration, confirmation, interpretation and crystallisation
  • We can work with the central phases of TA therapy: decontamination and deconfusion
  • Therapy can be enhanced through a group setting which has the potential to increase the effects of the analytic process of change
  • It is a fallacy to suppose that finding out the meaning of a dream is the important thing. (as Berne wrote in 1968). The meanings need to be felt not merely understood, for the interpretation to be effective. We consider:
    • o   Dreams as elements of a client’s internal dialogue
    • o   The evolution of dreams during the therapeutic process
    • o   How to use dreams in group therapy
    • o   Dreams following therapy
