  • EATA Webinar Series 2024, TA- Best Practice – 5 March

This event will be focused on working with children and teachers, we have three interesting speakers who are passionate about their subject

This webinar will cover three interconnected topics related to working with children and adolescents. Alina Comendant will present her ideas about “Interventions of strengthening the Child ego state when working with children”- that she reached as conclusions after an informal longitudinal research of a group of children (aged 6 to 11). Tatjana Gjurković will delve into the concept of Transactions, exploring their variations in working with children through the use of play as a communication medium. Additionally, Jan Šimek will share insights into the TA concepts employed in the Czech Republic to train future teachers, helping them create a secure and effective classroom environment.
