This workshop will present a transcultural and intersectional Ego State model considering the influence of transculture and intersectional identity on self and other. The model considers the intersect and interplay between race, gender, and other cultural selves, accounting for the complexity of cultural experience and narrative. Through enquiry of cultural selves and through mapping on an Ego State Model, we can develop more insight into intersectional identity, including how privilege and oppression is manifested in self and enacted in the world, how we may reflect on and locate cultural impasse, unconscious bias, generational oppression, white privilege, othering, and power dynamics.
Jazz and Victoria will engage in dialogue, accounting for cultural narrative and their unique intersectional identities will be mapped and discussed. Participants will be invited to consider their transcultural experience and locate their intersectional identity, thus accounting for power dynamics.

Jazz Rehal CTA has a private practice in Berkshire and is a continuity tutor at TA East. She sees the power of Transactional Analysis and the healing nature of Group work as a significant opportunity to better understand power processes, politics, and differences in relation to the self, other, and between. Jazz has been a significant rise in the number of Asian individuals and couples in her private practice, many of whom are second-generation and struggle with the duality of being British and Asian and the challenge of belonging to two cultures, and often the painful alienation of the in-between.
This workshop is aimed at all fields and all levels.
