Integral to the training is an awareness of difference and cultural diversity, bringing counselling and psychotherapy into social and political contexts.
TA East is committed to making the training accessible to all, representing transcultural East London.
TA east belongs to a diverse community of Transactional Analyst Psychotherapists across Britain, in Europe and the wider world.
Our challenge at TA East is to integrate an intersectional lens across the curriculum, considering social, political, cultural and historical contexts across the theory and practise, not as add ons but at every aspect of our being.
This begins at the planning stage of every unit, where tutors consider this lens across the curriculum and process. Who constructed the theory? When was it constructed? What were the social and political contexts of the time? Considering western lens, white privilege and what anti racism and anti discrimination looks like. This is a ‘living into’ challenge to us all but is in the veins of TA East.
