Welcome to our site – it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to EATA. I hope you will find the information you are looking for in our website.
EATA was founded on July 16th 1976 as the European Transactional Analysis Association with the aim to bring together the numerous TA training activities in Europe and to ensure high standards. EATA currently has 34 membership associations with more than 7550 members in 27 european countries.
This is a time of growth and development in TA throughout Europe and the world. The training and certification process including TA examinations, the conferences and trainers meetings, the publications and research, TA theory and practice, are all constantly developing in the fields of Counselling, Education and Organisations, and Psychotherapy,. You will find details of all these activities in this website.
One of our goals is to help create powerful national TA organisations, which can spread and developTransactional Analysis in Europe. We invite you to participate; and to enjoy our website!

Plenary Events and Key-note Speakers
Each day will have plenary events relating to aspects of this theme. We have chosen to play with the usual format and have made space for plenaries at the start of both the morning and the afternoon often with a focus on encounters between the speakers.
On Day One, the focus will be on Creating Encounters between us in the TA community with a plenary session facilitated by Adrienne Lee and Charlotte Sills, followed by workshops.
In the afternoon there will be another plenary session on researching the encounter, including the encounter between practice and research. This is presented by Roland Johnsson and Gunvor Stenlund who will share their doctoral research and invite participants encounter their inner researcher!
On Day Two, the plenary theme will be Encounter with the Demon, where Geoff Hopping and Ann David will facilitate a plenary session called Meeting the best of ourselves, meeting the worst of ourselves, to be followed by more workshops.
Day Three’s theme is Encounter in Context and we are experimenting with bringing the community together for the whole morning. A representative of each of the four fields of TA will present a session and offer us an experience on the importance of encounter in their particular field. The presenters will be Erich Hartmann (Organisation) Jean-Michel Javourez (Counselling) Nevenka Miljkovic (Education) and Carla de Nitto (Psychotherapy).
Workshops in the afternoon will be followed by a short closing event when we bring our learnings together, and then celebrations and goodbyes will go on into the evening with the GALA DINNER.
Throughout the conference, there will be a choice of over sixty exciting Workshops, offered by presenters from all over Europe.

The conference takes place in Holmenkollen Park Hotel Rica, with its glorious views of Oslo.
