4 February - Educating for freedom: a tool for human health and emporwerment with Alessandra Pierini (TSTA-P)

About the workshop:

Freedom is unquestionably a good, sometimes it is taken for granted, very often, actually, it is misunderstood: examples of this are the many interpersonal or intergroup conflicts or abuses created and maintained in the name of freedom.
With this workshop I want to stimulate participants to think about what the characteristics of freedom are and how we can concretely help children to be free and to value freedom.
Parents, educators, teachers and psychologists have a great responsibility in fostering in children and adolescents an attitude that encourages their ability to think and act with respect for themselves and others.

The following topics will be covered during the seminar:
– child/adolescent characteristics and developmental aspects;
– the links between healthy script and freedom;
– discount and stimulation;
– cooperation vs. competition;
– freedom and addiction;
– age-appropriate educational interventions for children/adolescents (both in clinical and social contest).

Examples and clinical cases will be used.

Participants are invited to share their clinical cases and point of view in order to make the workshop a co-constructed experience.

The seminar is based on the data gathered over almost 30 years of the presenter’s field experience with children and is inspired by the theoretical contribution of Maria Montessori, Jack Panksepp, Françoise Dolto and Jean Clarke (in the domain of Transactional Analysis)

About the trainer:

Alessandra Pierini is a psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor running training in an institute of TA she founded in Italy. She mostly works in psychotherapy and on the side she teaches TA to teachers and parents in schools as well as in organisations, in order to help increase intimacy and reduce games. She likes using stories, play and drawings to work with scripts towards redecision, attuned to the style of the style, desire and personal way of each client, irrespective of their age.

4-6 March - Co-creative transactional analysis – with Keith Tudor (TSTA-P), live in Bucharest

About the trainer:

Keith Tudor is a Certified Transactional Analyst, a Teaching and Supervising Transactional Analyst, and, with Graeme Summers, the winner of the 2020 Eric Berne Memorial Award for their work on co-creative transactional analysis. He is Professor of Psychotherapy at Auckland University of Technology where is also a Co-Lead of a Group for Research in the Psychological therapies.

About the workshop:

Co-creative transactional analysis emphasises the “co” (mutual, joint) aspect of professional relationships, whether therapeutic, educative, and/or consultative – and, by implication, of personal relationships. The “co” of co-creative acknowledges the transactional, inter-relational, mutual, joint, and co-operative, as well as partnership. The word “creative” is an intentional reference to what is original, imaginative, intuitive and spontaneous about the encounter between human beings. Together, the suffix and the root word describe what emerges between therapist, practitioner, supervisor and client.

In this workshop, and in conjunction with the participants, Keith will present the principles of co-creative transactional analysis and the philosophical influences on its development, as well as it’s key perspectives on TA. Depending on the interest of the group, he will also present some more recent research on the qualities of co-creative, as well as consider its contribution to contemporary relational theory and practice. There will be opportunities for discussion, demonstrations, presentation of clinical and other material, and small group work.

17-18 March - An ethical perspective on the art and discipline of freedom with Evelyne Papaux (TSTA-E)

About the webinar:

If stepping away from our script feels like a longed-for freedom, it is also challenging to let go of our story and well-known strategies. It invites us to develop more awareness about how we decide on our actions, to explore what this responsibility means in our everyday life and encounters. As practitioners it also raises new questions such as how to support our clients in living with the uncertainty of post-script experiences, in developing their own ethical perspectives.

This workshop will invite participants to explore how the on-going motion of integrating Adult can support ethical decision making and the potential internal dialogue present in such a process. We will also examine the idea of ethicability and its three stages process with regard to various situations. In addition we will more specifically inquire into situations involving  asymetrical relationships, such as working with children.

The workshop will be in English and we cannot provide translations, so a good enough understanding of spoken English is the minimum requirement for all attendants.


Psychologists, psychotherapists, educators and trainers, as well as Transactional Analysis enthusiasts who are excited about working with Evelyne Papaux on developing what can be called the art and discipline of freedom.

About the trainer:

Evelyne Papaux is a TSTA-E. For years she has been working with babies, children and their families; children with special needs, children in day care centres and in homecare. She is now active in the initial and ongoing training for educators for young children. She sees TA as a significant means of promoting prevention and /or resilience and empowering people.
