Joining EATA - FAQs

What is EATA?

EATA was founded on July 16th 1976 as the European Transactional Analysis Association with the aim to bring together the numerous TA training activities in Europe and to ensure high standards. EATA currently has 34 membership associations with more than 7,550 members in 27 European countries.

EATA’s aims include the promotion of knowledge and research on TA, the development of its theory, ensuring agreed standards of practice in the field of TA and setting and administering the standards for the qualifying examinations for transactional analysts.

Who becomes a member of EATA?

EATA membership is open to anyone who has an interest in Transactional Analysis, but is compulsory if you are a contractual trainee (someone who has signed an EATA training contract with their primary supervisor), are a CTA; PTSTA or TSTA who wishes to remain a part of the wider TA community, or, as all members of IARTA now are, you are a member of an affiliated organisation.

Why did IARTA apply to become an EATA affiliated organisation?

Our decision to apply for EATA affiliation was fully supported by our membership and was motivated by many factors, which included:

  • A desire for Relational Transactional Analysis be represented, and seen to have a place in EATA.
  •  To show that relational TA can make a vibrant contribution to the wider TA world.
  • To broaden Relational TA’s and IARTA’s largely UK base and take it further into international waters.
  • To give us access to research grants, bursaries, publications etc, so that we can continue to meet our aims.
  • To provide IARTA members, the vast majority of whom are already required to have EATA membership, with choice about where they get it.

When do I apply for membership?

The EATA membership year runs from 1st September to 31st August each year and is contingent upon individuals being a current member of an EATA afilliated organisation. Since there is a lot of administration involved in processing your membership before sending it off to EATA we require your EATA fees to be paid at the time of your IARTA membership renewal in the preceeding September.


What if I need to upgrade my membership or submit training contracts?

For those needing to upgrade their membership part way through the year such as students taking out an EATA Training Contract, or for those CTA members who take out TSTA contracts and become a PTSTA this can be done at any point of the year.

The procedure is :

Send THREE paper copies of your signed contract to

Nikitta Wehrle,
25 Station Road,
Stoke Mandeville,
Aylesbury. HP22 5UL

with accompanying payment made payable to IARTA with the relevant fees.

You can also email your contracts to Nikitta

For those needing to submit supplement forms such as Change of Principle Supervisor etc, again these get sent to Mica Douglas at the address above.

Where can I get the forms I need?

All the forms that you need for taking out training contracts etc can be found in the EATA Training Manual (external website.)

What if I pay my EATA membership through another affiliated organisation?

If you get your EATA Membership from another EATA affiliated organisation, you will still need to complete the online form, as we need to know which Member Organisation you are with and which Codes of Ethics you follow. All parts of the form will need to be completed except the EATA membership categories field. You will then need to e-mail a copy of your proof of EATA Membership to Mica Douglas at the address below.
