We are delighted to invite you to our 2019 Relational TA Conference, which we are celebrating with a party to mark our 10th Anniversary and also the forthcoming second edition of From Transactions to Relations, which continues the work of tracking the development of relational TA since its roots in the 1980.
We have a very special event planned this year – a fitting retrospective of relational TA – we have invited the co-editors of the book: Helena Hargaden and Bill Cornell to be our guest speakers discussing Relational TA and its Critiques and Challenges. They are two of the world’s leading thinkers in transactional analysis, people who have done much to shape relational TA and relational thinking and we are very excited to have them both with us.
In the evening, there will be a party, with drinks and finger foods as well as speeches by our past guest speakers and panellists. When you book, we will ask you to commit to whether you will stay for the evening in order to have some idea about numbers for catering.
Please note our conference this year is different from the usual format. Firstly, it is on a Friday rather than a Saturday. Secondly, it is being held at the DoubleTree Hotel in Ealing. We decided we needed a venue that could hold bigger numbers this year. We are negotiating a special conference rate for bedrooms in case you want to arrive the night before or stay over on Friday. (There are also relatively affordable rooms at the Premier Inn down the road. For more details see the website).
Some of you will be attending the UKTA Trainers Network meeting on the previous day. If you wish to stay over for the conference or if you are arriving on the Thursday night, we are arranging a get-together supper in a restaurant near the hotel. (Restaurant to be decided) So if you are interested please do let us know if you would like to come.
Booking information will be available on our website real soon, so in the meantime please do put date in your diary.
