Information on the introductory course

smcp runs two day introductory courses - these short 2 day courses are known as the official '101' course or Understanding Human Personality Course.

They introduce the theory and clinical skills used in TA Psychotherapy or Counselling and begin
to show how these can be applied to all human relationships as well as the psychotherapeutic encounter.

Attending a '101' course is a prerequisite for any further training in TA. Once you have attended a 101 course with a fully qualified
TA trainer then you do not need to repeat it anywhere else. Participants will receive a Certificate of attendance to show they
have completed the introductory course.

What is involved?

The 2 day official '101' smcp course (has, for now, moved online to the Zoom platform).

It is open access and introduces concepts that help us understand Human Personality, Psychotherapy, Counselling and
the theory and skills underpinning clinical application.

The 101 course is an opportunity to meet the Trainer, experience the learning environment and the style of training delivery.

The course provides an introduction to the key concepts of Psychotherapy theory and practical application using
Transactional Analysis as the primary model. It offers ways of thinking about human behaviour, personality and ways of
interacting with different personality styles and forms of communication.

The course will be delivered through a series of short teaching presentations, discussion and experiential exercises in small
groups (both online with other group members and some exercises you will do on your own at home during the day).

There will be opportunities to explore your own personality and relationships. It is fine to participate in a way that is right for
you and you can talk about your self and your experiences if you want and if you don't want to then that is fine too.
