Our Values

Our values are in accordance with the philosophical assumptions of TA, which are:

  • Everyone is OK – TIATA holds to this philosophical assumption which means that every Human is created equally and has inherent worth, value and dignity to be respected and to underpin all relationships and interactions.
  • Everyone has the capacity to think for themselves – All Humans have the ability to grow through their experience and learn to problem solve situations to enhance their own life and the lives of others.
  • Everyone can make decisions, and these decisions can be changed – All Humans can make choices that can enhance their lives and the lives and wellbeing of others and education and self-awareness increases the ability to make these choices wisely. TA is a framework to enhance these decisions.
