2021-2022 Certification Training Program in Transactional Analysis and Redecision, Relational Therapy, Louisville, Kentucky


This is a comprehensive training and supervision program for mental health professionals. It integrates the approaches of transactional analysis, gestalt, redecision therapy, relational therapy, attachment theory, systems theory, developmental theory, personality adaptations, body-work approaches, and energy psychology. We offer a powerful short-term approach that combines cognitive, behavioral, and affective/experiential techniques with an emphasis on working with the emotional brain.

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 5 months.

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.
