The transactional analysis includes elements of a psychoanalytic, humanistic and cognitive approach. It was developed by Eric Berne in the late 1950s. Unlike psychoanalysis, TA shifts focus from intrapsychic processes to interpersonal relationships. TA is both a theory of personality and a psychotherapeutic method aimed at personal development and personal change. TA is used in individual, couples, family, and group therapy. It is useful in education, business management consultancy, and communication.

Method neurofeedback The Neurofeedback method reflects the work of waves in the brain that are at the root of all performance functions.

The aim of this lecture is to clarify and present changes in the brain of the client which occur during neurofeedback the changes that the client experiences while he or she is involved in the psychotherapy process itself by using the neurofeedback device.

Namely, it is known that our behavior is CUMULATIVE. This method allows us to follow the changes in the physiology plan. It is of utmost importance to understand in a practical way and to believe that a man changing his beliefs and his cognition changes his work of physiology on such a sophisticated level as are those of the waves in the brain

In the course of the lecture the case of an OCD client will also be briefly presented who was taking drug therapy for more than 3 years and due to the failure of this type of therapy has also become involved in psychotherapy. The client was worked with parallel and evaluated on the neurofeedback device before, neurofeedback during and after psychotherapy, which lasted approximately 6 months.

Based on the results obtained it can be clearly seen that the client's physiology itself changes as the client changes his beliefs and his way of looking at himself and the world around him. This method has proven to be an excellent indicator of overall behavior of clients and an indicator of what realistic therapy actually teaches which is that by changing our beliefs we also change our entire organism.

We live in a deterministically structured universe in which the laws of physics regulate events in the physical world. We, humans, are a part of that world. Are we predetermined by the laws of psychics and the way our brains function? Are our choices determined by the Big Bang? Is free will reality or an illusion? The question of free will lies in the center of many philosophical, religious and ethical discussions which are being led for more than two thousand years. It is also a question of personal responsibility, the understanding of human behavior and the connection between the mind and the body. Through this lecture we will further examine researches and theories some of the leading experts from the fields of neuroscience, philosophy and psychology who have dealt with the same issues in their work.

16:00 –  17:00

In his books, which are intended for a wide circle of people, William Glasser talks about the creation of disease, taking control over health and how do we affect all of that. From a medical point of view, Glasser transmits that understanding in a very simplified way, to bring that topic closer to people who don't have medical knowledge.

In RT education, it is very important to understand that topic well, since in our line of work we meet people with different medical diagnosis, so our understanding of the „creation of disease is very important. A simplified and unambiguous understanding of Glasser's theory connected to medical diagnosis and illness, can only harm the theory, as well as it can harm the work with clients.

There are different etiological causes which affect the development and progression of disease, but they affect recovery as well. Through this lecture, I will try to explain, based on medical knowledge and understanding, what is disease, how is disease generated, which are the factors which affect the development of disease, how does our body „create“ disease and if we can contribute to self-healing and if so, to what extent.
