Berne’s energy theory and culture

Cathy McQuaid (TSTA-P)

Conference: Saturday, October 29th, 10.45 - 17.30

In this workshop we will look at the TA theory of energy, by which people are seen as a energy systems interacting with each other, and the implications of this on cultures.

The workshop will be largely experiential and participants will be invited to bring their ideas, experience and knowledge to the workshop. TA theory will be taught from first principles, no prior knowledge will be assumed.

We will welcome diversity and difference and participants are invited to bring their own ideas and a willingness to share from different viewpoints. We are invited to make this workshop a melting pot of ideas with a view to bringing together and seeking the emergence of acceptance of difference in an I am OK, You are OK and They are OK spirit.
