About this event

Ruptures and Recovery: Within and Between Individuals and Society

Four Sessions from All Four Fields of Transactional Analysis

Held over 16 hours so people from all over the world can easily participate

Unlike a typical didactic webinar, these four Zoom sessions will be interactive to stimulate more of the Adult in all of us. Each session will be limited to 100 participants and all will take place over a 16-hour period so that hopefully, regardless of where you live, you can participate in at least two of the sessions at convenient times.

YOU MUST PURCHASE either a "Live Participation + Recording" ticket or a "Recording-Only" ticket.

IF you purchase a "Live Participation + Recording" ticket, you will also need to register for each live session you plan to attend.

Session times are noted in GMT, so be sure to check what time that is in your part of the world. If you want help with that, click here for a time calculator. Please note that while for most of you the event will start on Saturday, for those of you living in the western part of the USA and Canada, the event actually will begin late Friday evening.

The day will start with a brief introduction from ITAA President Elana Leigh and Workshop Coordinator Michelle Thomé, after which the first session will begin. We will have four sessions over the next 16 hours. Each session is 2.5 hours long. Each speaker will invite participants to reflect and interact with others during the session. All sessions will be conducted in English.

Within a week of the event, ITAA will post recordings of each speaker’s lecture—in English—on the ITAA YouTube channel. After the event, we will email you a link and access instructions. These recordings will remain available to you until 23 June 2021.

Cannot attend live on 21-23 May? You may purchase a Recordings-Only ticket for full access to all four recordings until 23 June 2021.

IF you purchase a "Recording Only" ticket, please do NOT register for any of the sessions -- you will get access to all of them with the recordings.

ITAA would love to provide interpretation services for as many languages as possible -- but that means we need your help. See below for more information.
