Communication with others is crucial for our life, our happiness and well-being. Communication may lead to a lot of joy. But it can also lead to a lot of discomfort.

This module studies complementary transactions, crossed transactions and hidden transactions. The transactions are an instrument for understanding what happens when communicating with someone else.
Transactions can help you to actively foster respectful and intimate conversations, detect manipulations and react to them mindfully.

05 Contracts/Agreements (6 Videos, 1 Exercise/File)

Confusion and discomfort often lie in the belief that other people will have the exact same understanding of a situation that we we do. Transactional Analysis uses the word „contract“ to describe a mutual agreement. We are not talking about a legal contract but the competency to facilitate agreements successfully. What is a contract? Why do contracts improve relationships? What parts are included into a contract? How can I use contracts in my professional and my private life? What techniques are available to facilitate contracts? What requirements are needed for a successful contract? What is a contract with myself?
Contracts are like entering your destination in the navigation system of your car. If you close your contracts wisely you will reach your goals smoothly. A clear framework will help your relationships to prosper. All parties know what to expect from each other and there is no room for misunderstandings. Wishes and needs can be fulfilled. Transparency instead of confusion, growing together instead of rivalry.
