More About Project TA 101
Transactional analysts know the basic principles of worth, value, and dignity of every human being are more important than ever in today’s world!
Lack of access to a TA 101 in many countries has been a significant obstacle to quality TA education for people working and living in traditionally underserved or disadvantaged communities, individuals living with disabilities or in rural areas, and families living in poverty.
This project began in January 2018 with collaboration among ITAA, USATAA, and Southeast Institute for the “Promoting Equality and OK-ness: Healing Divisions in Our World” Conference in Raleigh, N.C. The IESA Committee proposed a social justice focused TA 101, taught at this conference.
The IESA Committee set a goal to develop diverse, accessible, recognized transactional analysis education from videos of this TA 101 designed on learner engagement strategies, with 24-hour access to the course materials.
Through Project TA 101, foundational TA training is now available and accessible to communities of learners who may not be able to access these powerful tools for personal development and social transformation.
We are thrilled with what we have accomplished so far, and we still need your help.
