Back in August, I attended the ITAA Conference in San Francisco.
I had had the good fortune to take (and pass!) my CTA oral exam in SF, and I was happy to be returning. It is the birth place of Transactional Analysis and I was looking forward to seeing some of the TA gurus whose work I have followed for more than a decade.
I was not disappointed. Jean Ilsley-Clarke, Muriel James, Claude Steiner, Leonard Campos, George Kohlrieser, Bill Cornell ..... it was great to attend workshops ran by some of these TA greats. Muriel James and George Kohlrieser even attended the day long organisational symposium I was invited to take part in! What an honour.
This day was lead by Sari van Poelje and the programme was vibrant, exciting and very well received. If you would like a more detailed article of how the day went, click here.
This was my first time, taking part in such a different workshop format and I enjoyed being part of delivering something new. We had a graphic recorder, whose work was fascinating - she listened to the speaker and captured the essence of what was being said on giant posters, which by the end of the day decorated our room. The posters attracted great interest and comment for the rest of the conference! See below for some examples.
I was out of my comfort zone - not in total control of a workshop in the way that I usually am was an interesting experience - and I really enjoyed it!
