OTA Academy

Multidisciplinary school for Organisational Transactional Analysis

This qualification in Organisational Transactional Analysis is aimed at professionals operating within or for public or private bodies charged with:

  • Managing interpersonal dynamics and staff systems, and rapidly improving their efficiency and efficacy
  • Understanding and proposing strategies for internal development
  • Predicting and reflecting on the repercussions of change on the organisation's system and personnel
  • Comprehending and applying transactional analysis models when working with organisational system staff
  • Creating a culture and climate that promotes learning, personal and professional growth, and business development

The training course lasts 3 years, and is based on the principles and methodology of Eric Berne's transactional analysis theory, which seeks to explain personality and interactions, and can be used to promote change and growth on both a personal level and within organisations.

This theory provides the key to understanding personal and group psychology, i.e., what we say to ourselves, and how we interact with others.

Transactional analysis theory is highly versatile and lends itself to integration with other innovative approaches, for example, current lines of research into Mindfulness and the neurosciences. The course makes full use of this flexibility, by integrating a range of disciplines.
