We are holding our AGM on the 17th March 2016 in CPT and JHB (via skype) – please join us!
Every few months, we interview a person of the SATAA to get more insight into who is part of our community. This time, we interview Marguerite Sacco-Turner.
We are very excited to announce that in 2016, a group of South Africans have the opportunity to become accredited TIFF practitioners.
What is TIFF?
It is the Temple Index of Functional Fluency. The Functional Fluency model of human social behaviour for mapping behavioural patterns, has been researched and created by Susannah Temple. It is positioned within the body of Transactional Analysis. Susannah won the 2014 Eric Berne Memorial Award for her work in developing this tool.
Practitioners already working as coaches, facilitators, consultants, counsellors or educators are trained in understanding and administering the TIFF Questionnaire. They are trained to give feedback and to provide further ongoing personal/professional developmental support.
“Functional Fluency is the art and skill of interpersonal effectiveness. The TIFF Questionnaire completion produces a profile of someone’s behaviour patterns socially –a sort of snapshot of the ways that the person uses their energy in relationships. It shows how somebody balances energy used on his or her own behalf, as well as on behalf of others, and on keeping ‘with-it’ and in touch with current reality. It is useful as a tool for increasing self-awareness and understanding, therefore enhancing emotional literacy and interpersonal effectiveness” – Temple
Doing this training in Europe will cost approx. R 40,000 just for the training – we will be able to do it at a very reduced cost, as the trainer, Lieuwe Koopmans (an org PTSTA) is willing to offer it if his flights and accommodation are covered.
More information will follow… if you are interested in this opportunity, get in touch with us! firstname.lastname@example.org
Hosted by Valley Development Projects, Joanna Beasley and John Baxendale will soon generously donate their time to give a free workshop that will help participants understand how shock and trauma affect both mind and body, and sometimes keep us trapped in the past.
