Transactional Analysis

Description

The pupils and staff of Grange Middle School in Harrow use transactional analysis to help to develop emotional literacy and improve behaviour.

Transactional Analysis is used by psychologists in counselling and has recently gained popularity in schools. It is based on Freudian theory and works by developing recognition of three ego states: parent, adult and child. Children can identify which ego state they are using at any one time and whether it is the most appropriate state for the given circumstance.

Transactional Analysis relies on regular assemblies and the use of "circle time", in which children are encouraged to develop interpersonal skills through class discussion.

Key points covered on transactional analysis:

  • It improves behaviour in the classroom
  • It helps children express themselves better
  • It creates a happier working and learning environment
