NEW COURSE – MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED

Join or renew membership here

Starting January 15, 2020 we will begin conducting an Online Basic Learning Group. Open to members only, this is a unique and valuable opportunity that will allow you to develop your understanding of Affect/Script theory with others.

IMPORTANT REAL-WORLD VALUE

Tomkins can enhance your capacity to more effectively navigate human emotion and motivation in any field that involves working with people.  Whether your work is in therapy, community work, teaching, policing, or managing, Tomkins provides a framework to understand what’s going on for others, what’s going on for you, and how you can help create a context to enable others to make sense and meaning of the sometimes confusing world of interpersonal relationships.

JOIN OTHER PROFESSIONALS

The Study Group is open to members of the Institute or to those who would like to join and become part of a worldwide community of scholars and professionals seeking to assist others to develop and maintain meaningful and productive relationships with their family, their community and their place of work.
