HELP University staff attending workshop, People Skills Training through Transactional Analysis
HELP University conducted a workshop: People Skills Training through Transactional Analysis on 21 May 2015 from 9.00am to 5.00pm for HELP University staff at HELP Residence. This one-day human relations workshop introduced the theory and practice of transactional analysis to HELP University staff. This workshop was conducted by Dr. Fredrick A. Bohols, Associate Professor at HELP UNiversity’s Department Of Psychology.
Dr. Fredrick A. Bohols who comes from the Philippines, is a very experienced speaker with experience from all over the world. He is both a motivating and an uplifting speaker.
“The reason this workshop is being carried out is because as an education institute, it is important for us to have a good personality and relationship with the public. How can we have a good personality and relationship? By simply improving our working culture, values, traits and life-scripts. If one does this successfully, they will notice peace in both work and at home”, said Dr. Fredrick A. Bohols.
This workshop mirrored how transactional analysis as a school of thought stands on the assumption that a personality can be best understood in the light of social relationships and not in isolation.
Education Advisor, Gregory Jude De Souza said, “This workshop has showed me that one can never be too proud to think that they know everything as life is a learning process. Sometimes we have to unlearn and relearn new things. It is important for one to be open to this idea in order to be a successful person”. He went on, “As it is said in Michael Jackson’s song, Man in the Mirror: If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and then make a change”.
This workshop provided staff with exercises to increase self-awareness, knowledge and skills in dealing with the dynamics of human relationships which are essential elements to personal, professional, and organizational growth.
The sessions were divided into two sections: the morning and afternoon session. The morning session focused on the ego state structure of personality and the process of personality formation. The afternoon session proceeded to discuss the dynamics of human psychological transactions. This section presented theories of human relationships.
The nature of interpersonal conflict and how people unknowingly manipulate each other was also discussed.
Overall, this session successfully informed and educated staff from all departments of HELP University.
