About EATA

Promoting knowledge and research on Transactional Analysis

EATA PURPOSE

In our mission statement, we say (among other things):  The purpose of the European Association for Transactional Analysis is the following:
To promote knowledge and research on Transactional Analysis, to develop its theory, and to ensure agreed standards of practice
To promote cooperation in Europe in the field of Transactional Analysis
To connect the affiliated members of EATA through their national, regional, international or specialist TA Associations

EATA PRINCIPLES

The mutual respect of people working with other people is the base of each transactional work in the fields of psychotherapy, counselling, education and organizational work.

The treatment of a patient with a depression and the coaching of a manager of a pharmaceutical company are based on the same ethical standards –the values of dignity of human beings, self-determination, health, security and mutuality are obligatory for each TA-practitioner–, independently of the field of application.

The basic ethical principles that derive from these values are:
RESPECT
EMPOWERMENT
PROTECTION
RESPONSIBILITY
COMMITMENT IN RELATIONSHIP

These principles relate to different target groups, like clients, practitioners, trainees, colleagues and human environment / community. 

We are asked and obliged to realize these principles in our own work and to communicate with these different target groups how they bring these principles in their practise. If for example a trainee or a colleague doesn’t follow these principles we confront it in a respectful and clear way on the base of our roles.

EATA IN NUMBERS

EATA currently has 44 member associations with more than 7550 members in 28 european countries it has been necessary to develop our own definitions and handling of these processes to be able to address the needs of the members in Europe more directly.

EATA is completely separated in its functioning from ITAA, which is still the central TA organisation for the whole world. The close connection is secured by organisational structures that ensure mutual information, co-operation and recognition. The basic standards for training and certification are still the same (with variations according to the different needs and state regulations in different countries).

EATA MISSION

Mission Statement – The purpose of the European Association for Transactional Analysis is the following:

  • To promote knowledge and research on Transactional Analysis, to develop its theory, and to ensure agreed standards of practice.
  • To promote cooperation in Europe in the field of Transactional Analysis.
  • Membership: the members of the Association are affiliated members of EATA through their national, regional, international or specialist TA Associations, which are affiliated with EATA.
  • The rights and conditions of Affiliation are decided by the EATA Council and layed down in the Council Regulations.

For the implementation of its purposes, the Association will, in particular:

  • work to ensure conformity to agreed standards of training, certification and practice of Transactional Analysis in Europe.
  • encourage the participation of Transactional Analysis (TA) Associations in the formation and execution of EATA policy.
  • aid European TA Associations to coordinate their activities, including conferences, training and certification, publications and information, by facilitating communication between them.

EATA ETHICS

Introduction
  • The EATA Ethical Code is intended to act as a guideline for national organisations affiliated to EATA and for each EATA member.
  • It is intended to help EATA members working in psychotherapy, counselling, organisational and educational fields to act ethically
  • Each national association has the task of applying it coherently to the deontological national code
  • Furthermore, this Code informs the public about what behaviour they can expect in these contexts from members of this Association.
  • National organisations, affiliated to EATA, assume the EATA ethical code and use it as a frame of reference to analyse specific situations for its members. Each EATA member needs to conform to it in his or her practice. If this is not the case, the National Associations will formulate sanctions.
  •  The official language of EATA is English… therefore the English version is the officially recognised version.
This Code has three sections
  • Section 1 is an introduction to the Code pointing out the basic perspective about Ethics
  • Section 2 is the core of the Code and explains the definition of fundamental values and related ethical principles
  • Section 3: This short section is designed to be a bridge to ethical practice.
 
See EATA Ethics Code  (Updated – February 13th 2012)
See Codul de Etica EATA 2012  (Romanian Version – 2012)
In July 2016 EATA Council approved the creation of a facility to review any affiliated organisations management of ethical and professional practices complaints. This facility is called an Ethical review Panel (ERP).
An ERP is an appeal panel. It can be used by EATA members where they consider the outcome of an affiliated organisations’ ethical procedures and practices included a failure of the affiliated organisation to effectively apply its own procedures and protocols or where it is considered that the existing procedures and protocols are unfit for practice.
A case must be made to the EATA Ethical Advisor following the Ethical Review Panel Procedures and Protocols which can be downloaded here.
Anyone wishing to request EATA to form an ERP is strongly advised to contact the Ethical Advisor to discuss their case prior to submission.

If though, for any reason, a person wishes to make a formal complaint concerning an EATA member undertaking EATA business then they must use the agreed procedures here.Anyone seeking to use these procedures is advised to contact the EATA Ethical Advisor to discuss the application of the procedures.

OTHER ROLES

EATA Council Delegates

To realize and to work as a voluntary organization, EATA works with Delegates and officers in a Council. They come from all the countries where EATA has affiliated associations. They discuss and decide on EATA’s policy, strategical development, budget, projects and so on. Delegates work in committees that do the operative and strategic work in certain areas, for example communication, research and TA development or professional training standards. They participate in task-forces that work on specific, time-bound projects. And once a year, Council comes together to work for three days, somewhere in Europe.

EATA Affiliated Associations

EATA affiliates national, regional and special interest TA organizations.

In some countries, like the UK and Italy, there are more than one associations affiliated with EATA. Often, there’s a practical reason, like languages spoken in a country. Switzerland and Belgium for example have associations for each language spoken there. Germany, the Netherlands and Finland have one association. Based on the total membership of associations registered in a country, the country is represented by one or two Delegates.

EATA HISTORY

Some memories about the history of EATA, by Jan Hennig

Click to see in big

EATA was founded on July 16th 1976 as the European TA Association with the aim to bring together the numerous training activities in TA in Europe in a federated structure to ensure quality and standards and help create powerful national TA organisations, which can spread and develop Transactional Analysis in Europe.

From the beginning EATA was an organisation of membership organisations and worked in close co-operation – and with the same standards and requirements – as ITAA (the International Transactional Analysis Association in Oakland/USA).

For the first years the co-operation with ITAA was very close and training and exams were defined and organised with ITAA contracts and exams.

EATA PRESIDENTS

This presentation about the history of EATA is composed of personal statements and stories from past presidents.

So the stories told here are completely personal and seen through the eyes of the portrayed persons.

Out of different reasons, we have not been able to have a poster of all our past presidents and 4 of them are not presented here – in spite of their importance and role at their time:

Antoinette de Mol, EATA president 1984 until 1985
Alice Stevenson, EATA president 1985 until 1986
Gerrit Heesters, EATA president 1986 until 1987
Ann Waters, EATA president 1991 until 1992

We hope you have fun looking at this exhibition and either remember “the old times” or learn about the “life” of EATA during the last 40 years.
