ICTAQ - the International Centre for Transactional Analysis Qualifications was launched by Julie Hay, Lynda Tongue and Sandra Wilson to provide a way to offer more qualifications and to supplement the international TA qualifications of CTA
and TSTA (Certified Transactional Analyst, Teaching & Supervising Transactional Analyst).
We already had the ICDSV for Developmental Super-Vision qualifications, and the ICDTA for awards and qualifications that relates to the
developmental fields of TA application (i.e. organisational, educational, counselling/coaching). We have now added ICTAP - for TA Psychotherapy qualifications.
ICDSV, ICDTA and ICTAP all operate on the basis of ongoing assessment of
professional practice (rather than essays), with certificate and diploma as stages on the way to an MSc and/or relevant international TA qualifications. This sidesteps the international procedures whereby you get nothing if you drop out
between your introductory TA 101 program and the final examinations a few years later.
We have a team of colleagues who have been involved with developmental TA and with super-vision over several years, and a more recent team
for TA psychotherapy. We invite all P/TSTAs who might like to offer any of these qualifications to
contact us to
discuss joining the relevant team.
