Certification Training Program in Redecision/Relational Therapy and Transactional Analysis – 2016 Fall Semester

Certification Training Program
In 
Redecision/Relational Therapy and Transactional Analysis
Chapel Hill, NC

Fall Semester 2016

Southeast Institute
This is a comprehensive training program integrating the approaches of Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Redecision Therapy, Relational Therapy, Attachment Theory, Systems Theory, Developmental Theory, Personality Adaptations, Body Work, and Energy Psychology. We offer a very powerful short-term approach that combines cognitive, behavioral, and affective/experiential techniques. The focus of the training is on developing a broad conceptual framework and mastering effective techniques for individual, couple, family, and group therapy. The program meets on a Friday and Saturday once a month for 10 months and is designed on a two-year cycle. Enrollment is on a semester basis. Certification as a TA Practitioner requires the TA 101 Course and 10 months of training. Certification as a Redecision Therapist requires 20 months of training, a written exam, and a tape demonstrating one’s competency in Redecision Therapy. In Louisville, the program meets every other month. The program consists of theory, demonstration, supervision, and experiential work. Our experience is that individuals learn best by having an opportunity to practice what they are learning and get direct supervision of their work. Therefore, we have participants work directly with one another using video to enhance the supervision. Participants also have the opportunity to do personal work with the faculty and observe them working with others.
