TA – 101

This course was conducted by NCCS on October 05 – 06, 2013 in collaboration with International Transactional Analysis Association (ITAA). Based on the work of Eric Berne, Transactional Analysis (TA) has enabled our students to understand complexities of human behaviour, communication and relationships.


This introductory course covered theory of TA, including the structure of personality; transactions, and the ways to relate self to others; time structuring; the psychological "games" we play; and life scripts. Participants had the opportunity to apply the learned theory to their own behaviour and the behaviour of others in the group.

This "TA 101" course is particularly useful to people working in helping professions, or in management, communications or teaching.

Personality Development and Communication

Personality Development and ability to communicate are interrelated. We invited Shridhar Kshirsgar and Manisha Jayaraman to conduct workshop for our students. Using Psychometric evaluations, Shridhar and Manisha were instrumental in enabling our students to determine:

  • expressed and wanted affection, control and inclusion needs. 
  • their emotional blocks among participants.
