FOUR FIELDS OF APPLICATION

Counselling

The Counselling field of specialisation: TA Counselling is a professional activity within a contractual relationship. The counselling process enables clients or client systems to develop awareness, options and skills for problem management and personal development in daily life through the enhancement of their strengths, resources and functioning. Its aim is to increase autonomy in relation to their social, professional and cultural environment.

2
Education

The Educational field of specialisation is for practitioners who work in the area of learning and study in pre-school, school, university, and post-university contexts. It is also concerned with the support of child, adolescent and adult learners within the family, the institution or society. The work may be applied to the development of teaching teams and institutions. The aim is to further personal and professional growth, both scholastic and social.

3
Organization

The Organisational field of specialisation is for practitioners who work in or for organisations, taking into account organisational frames of reference and contexts as well as the organisation’s development. Their work is aimed at the development, growth and increased effectiveness of people working within organisations.

4
Psychotherapy

The Psychotherapy field of specialisation is for practitioners who aim to facilitate the client’s capacity for self-actualisation, healing and change. The psychotherapeutic process enables the client to recognise and change archaic, self-limiting patterns –”to deal with the pain of the past in the present so that they are free to live their lives in the future”’. The aim is for clients to understand themselves and their relationships and create options to live their lives in an aware, creative, spontaneous way and open to intimacy.

PTSC UPDATING

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING ONLINE TSTA EXAMS


PTSC has further developed the online TSTA evaluation format in order to honour its commitment with EATA, the EC and all candidates to maintain the quality and rigour expected for a TSTA level exam. This format is also meant to support those candidates who have already taken their TOE exams, giving them the opportunity to complete this journey, and also to facilitate this process for those who are still unable to travel.

The supervision part of the exam will be organized online in 2022.

Option will be given to candidates to decide whether they want to take this part of the exam online or in presence. Some small changes have been devised by PTSC for this online supervision part, for example a long break between first level and second level supervision.    

The teaching part done “online” will have a “blended format” this means that candidates will give the two teachings onsite, teaching presentation and 101, in the presence of an audience, unconnected and different from their own training group, institute, and Principal Supervisor, while being videotaped. A TSTA, who is not the PS nor co-sponsor of the candidate, selected by the candidate, is required to be present during the two teachings ,his/her responsibility is to ensure that the process takes place according to requirements, and to certify this.
 The candidates  will then bring their videotape to an online Board to be evaluated and to take their other part of the exam, that is questions and dialogue with the Board online, which will be a “normal Board” organized by the OES, online version of the Local Exam supervisors. 

(PTSC decision October 11 2021)

PTSC is committed to support all and training members and  trainers in such unforeseeable and unprecedented situation. The pandemic is considered as an exceptional situation. 

NEW IMPORTANT INFORMATION  FOR ALL TRAINERS

 “ Following to the several meetings and exchanges that have been taking place throughout the last 12 months and to the mock exams that were conducted independently by EATA and ITAA, the decision has been that EATA  will  continue to be developing online exams as well as onsite exams  during the next few months; that EATA will continue for the time being to carry out  online CTA  exams, to hold TSTA exams online in part one TOE (Theory, Organizations and Ethics). EATA will also be holding Supervision exams online, with some adjustments specifically for the online format, and with some changes for both formats online and onsite (with the latter becoming a requirement in 2022). Information concerning the Supervision part of the exam will be available as of October 2021.

The teaching part of the TSTA exam will require ,together with the online format, a further teaching part onsite, as online teaching skills are different than teaching skills “offline” in presence. Candidates will have several possible options available to comply with this requirement.

On the basis of the mutual recognition agreement the TSTA exams done through ITAA will be recognized by EATA , in its three parts, after complying  with the requirement, for candidates ,in the teaching part,  to have a further  onsite teaching segment taught, according to the different  options offered to the candidates by EATA. The options will be indicated, in all details,  within the end of  October 2021.“
