Tactics: Transactional Analysis Concepts for All Trainers, Teachers and Tutors

TA Resources by Rosemary Napper & Trudi Newton Spiral Bound preowned and unmarked. 

Review: "I did listen to a keynote speech which Rosemary gave at one of the ITA (institute of Transactional Analysis) national conferences and it was brilliant - so was expecting lots when I picked this up. As soon as you open this book you will know it's special because of the wonderful contents map opposite the "normal" contents list.

The book is quite big - A4 size and is deliberately this size so that you can photocopy pages if needed for teaching or training purposes. Learning about learning is clever... Very clever, and also very useful...

"Learning is the bringing together of information, abilities and experiences - both internal and external - to create a new insight or competence which becomes freshly integrated into an individual's understanding of the world."

That for me is worth the cover price alone because you can use it to set the stage for all what follows - and as I'm writing this thinking I will start my next presentation with this quote... Nice... The book is split into an intro and 11 sections which have also been explained very well at the beginning of the book - sort of like it's own review. And each section has the same structure:
Overview of aim
An activity to get you started
Explaining the relevant bit of TA theory
Another activity to reinforce the learning
Ideas to apply the concept

And again this makes the book really easy to follow, comprehend and hopefully learn from. Rather than go through each section - as the authors have already made a better job than I could probably do - I will explain "How and Why" you will benefit if you choose to buy this book - now - as the hypnotist part of me laughs...

How do I do something and then how do I explain what I know so that I am understood? This book covers this question probably better than anything else I have read so far on learning - and in a comprehensible way so that it's useful and usable.

Why do it in a certain way - because the broad experience of the authors and their peers shows that this works. The collaborative nature of this books is lovely - Rosemary and Trudi list no less than 23 people at the beginning on the acknowledgement page...

How and Why... If I ask my self how I solve this problem - I may get better...
If I ask myself why I have this problem - I may get depressed and stay stuck...
Even the how and why can be used in a certain fashion... Anyway, I have got more than my £20's worth out of this book - so thanks Rosemary and Trudi...


Happy Customers told us

You provided what the town and city shops can't and I'm just so happy you do and will of course return soonest.- Paul in Scotland

"I just wanted to let you know that my son has received his gift pack in York and he was really touched! He loved the fact that thought had gone into it from both me and you so thank you very much." - Michelle in Shepshed.

"Books received by my mother thank you so much. She is so happy and it has calmed her down, she has been so hyper and anxious the last few days, but your magic has worked wonders. Thank you thank you thank you!" Carolyn in London

Good afternoon, this may be a little random, but I have had an experience due to your shop!
I popped in a couple of weeks ago and picked-up a book for my grandma related to WW1 and Castle Donington. Through her reading of the book, we discovered that it had some relatives in it. We found out more information about our family history and how they passed in the war. I used this information to undertake some online/Facebook research and I am now in contact with some Austrian relatives.
A 10-minute trip to you has led to a lot!

"This fabulous bookshop is quirky, welcoming - an absolute treasure trove. The time's I've challenged the team to find a certain book for me and never have they let me down. Now when I go in they make suggestions of books they think I may enjoy and even keep books to one side for me if I'm not about for a day or two.

They also provide the most wonderful monthly subscription to my Mum - a cosy crime novel each month. As I live a good distance from her it's lovely to hear her excitement when she receives her book and to talk about what has been sent on the 'phone. A great gift thoughtfully delivered by an knowledgeable, wonderful team. Thank you and keep up the wonderful work! You are, without a doubt, my favourite shop in all the world! x" Rachel in Wales
