Using Transactional Analysis in Career Development.
This program, in two sections, provides a concise introduction to Transactional Analysis (TA) and some practical applications for its use in the field of career development. Lectures and demonstrations show how Transactional Analysis techniques were used in initiating Career Development Programs with teachers, parents, and students. The presentation includes a brief history of TA, and discussions of ego states, life positions, transactions, strokes, time-structuring, and contracting. The premise of the presentation is that student development and career development are mutual concerns. In order for a student to make accurate and meaningful decisions regarding careers it is necessary for her/him to develop adult thinking and maintain an all-OK attitude. TA principles can be used to assist students in attaining this maturity in decision-making so that they will be able to assimilate career information into legitimate potential career directions and choices. A set of slides, used in the original presentation, is not included. (Author/SJL)
