Fall Semester 2023: Certification Training Program in Transactional Analysis & Redecision, Relational Therapy, Chapel Hill

 Registration is closed for this event


Become a Master Therapist. This comprehensive training program can help you do that. It provides a clear framework and a powerful set of experiential tools for individual, group, couples, and family therapy. It is conducted by Vann S. Joines, Ph.D. and Jessica D’Andrea, Psy.D. and is based on 50 years of experience in training and supervising psychotherapists in becoming master clinicians. It will provide you the opportunity to grow both personally and professionally as you work experientially with the faculty and with your peers as both therapist and client under direct supervision of the faculty in a nurturing and supportive atmosphere. 

You will learn a developmental model of how individuals grow and develop and how trauma adversely affects that development and how it can be corrected so that we can choose the kind of life and relationships we want for ourselves in the present.

Information from Transactional Analysis, Gestalt Therapy, Redecision Therapy, Relational Therapy, Developmental Theory, Attachment Theory, Neuropsychology, Personality Focused Treatment (PFT)®, Family Systems Therapy, Psychomotor Therapy, and Trauma Resolution Energy Therapy (TRET)® will be taught and demonstrated by the faculty.
