Transactional Analysis for trainers (part two): understanding transactions

In this episode of the Trainer Tools podcast, I welcome back Garry Platt to continue discussions on his specialist subject: Transactional Analysis.

Transactional Analysis, or TA, is a theory of how humans interact with each other – its main application being to help understand human behaviour and communication: each interaction between people being called a “transaction”. It was developed by Canadian psychiatrist Eric Berne and has been a tool in the trainer and coach toolbox for many years in helping us understand ourselves and our own interpersonal behaviours, but also understand those of others.

In this episode Garry talks about “Transaction”, and this builds on the first podcast “Transactional Analysis for trainers (part one): understanding ego states” that you should check out before listening to this.

Garry has also blogged about this on LinkedIn
