Originally published in , this book outlines a new, unified system of individual and social psychiatry that were introduced in the United States around that time with remarkable success in various hospitals and other psychiatric establishments.
The changes would not necessarily be verbal — the changes could involve facial expressions, body language, body temperature, and many other non-verbal cues. In one counseling session, Berne treated a 35 year old lawyer.
Later, in their sessions, the lawyer would frequently ask Dr. As Berne gained confidence in this theory, he went on to introduce these in a paper — one year before he published his seminal paper introducing Transactional Analysis. Berne ultimately defined the three ego states as: Parent, Adult, and Child.
It should be carefully noted that the descriptions of these ego states do NOT necessarily correspond to their common definitions as used the English language. Berne describes this best when he writes in Transactional Analysis in Psychotherapy: Parent — The parent represents a massive collection of recordings in the brain of external events experienced or perceived in approximately the first five years of life.
Since the majority of the external events experienced by a child are actions of the parent, the ego state was appropriately called Parent. Note that events perceived by the child from individuals that are NOT parents but who are often in parent-like roles are also recorded in the Parent. When Transactional Analysts refer to the Parent ego state as opposed to a biological or stepparent , it is capitalized.
The same goes for the other two states Adult and Child. It is worth noting that, while recording these events, the young child has no way to filter the data; the events are recorded without question and without analysis.
One can consider that these events are imposed on the child. There are other data experienced by the child that are not recorded in the Parent. This is recorded in the Adult, which will be described shortly. Child — In contrast to the Parent, the Child represents the recordings in the brain of internal events associated with external events the child perceives.
Stated another way, stored in the Child are the emotions or feelings which accompanied external events. Like the Parent, recordings in the Child occur from childbirth all the way up to the age of approximately 5 years old. Adult — The Adult is the last ego state. Close to one year of age, a child begins to exhibit gross motor activity.
The child learns that he or she can control a cup from which to drink, that he or she can grab a toy. In social settings, the child can play peek-a-boo.
This is the beginning of the Adult in the small child. In other words, the Adult allows the young person to evaluate and validate Child and Parental data. One of the key functions of the Adult is to validate data in the parent.
An example is:. In an attempt to explain Transactional Analysis to a more mainstream audience, Dr. Thomas Harris developed the following summary. The summary is as follows:. Parent — taught concept Child — felt concept Adult — learned concept.
Information on both of these books can be found in the Bibliography page. When two people communicate, one person initiates a transaction with the transactional stimulus see the above Transactions Defined section for a definition of the transaction stimulus.
The person at whom the stimulus is directed will respond with the transactional response.
Transactional Analysis in Psychotherapy: Eric Berne: cittadelmonte.info: Books
Simple Transactional Analysis involves identifying which ego state directed the stimulus and which ego state in the other person executed the response. According to Dr. Berne, the simplest transactions are between Adults ego states. But not all transactions proceed in this manner. Some transactions involve ego states other than the Adult. This leads us to Parent — Child transactions, which are almost as simple as Adult-Adult transactions.
Quoting Dr. Berne in Games People Play: The Parent of the mother acknowledges this stimuli, and then gives the water to the child. This is nearly as simple as an Adult-Adult transaction.
One of the tools used by a Transactional Analysis practitioner is a structural diagram , as represented on the left. A structural diagram represents the complete personality of any individual. It includes the Parent, Adult, and Child ego states, all separate and distinct from each other.
Transactional Analysts will then construct a diagram showing the ego states involved in a particular transaction. The transaction to the right shows a Parent — Child transaction, with the Child ego state providing the transactional stimulus , and the Adult responding with the transactional response.
So far, the two transactions described can be considered complementary transactions. In a complementary transaction, the response must go back from the receiving ego state to the sending ego state. For example, a person may initiate a transaction directed towards one ego state of the respondent. Berne, these transactions are healthy and represent normal human interactions.
However, not all transactions between humans are healthy or normal. In those cases, the transaction is classified as a crossed transaction.
In a crossed transaction, an ego state different than the ego state which received the stimuli is the one that responds. The diagram to the right shows a typical crossed transaction.
An example is as follows:. This is one the classic crossed transactions that occurs in marriage.

It is important to note that when analyzing transactions, one must look beyond what is being said. Berne, one must look at how the words are being delivered accents on particular words, changes in tone, volume, etc. Transactional Analysts will pay attention to all of these cues when analyzing a transaction and identifying which ego states are involved. The importance of these non-verbal cues can be understood by considering the work of Dr.
Albert Mehrabian. Mehrabian, when an individual is speaking, the listener focuses on the following three types of communication:. In the above statistics, the percentage figure indicates the degree of importance the listener places on that type of communication. One can see that facial expressions play a far more important role in communication and thus, Transactional Analysis than the actual words exchanged. Berne went on to discuss other types of transactions, but those will not be discussed here.
Once a reasonable understanding of ego states and Transactional Analysis has been achieved, the games as described in Games People Play can be understood at a whole new level. Berne went on to refine his theories beyond Games People Play.
Some of these works can be seen in the Bibliography. Berne introduced the idea of strokes into Transactional Analysis based upon the work of Rene Spitz, a researcher who did pioneering work in the area of child development.
Spitz observed that infants deprived of handling — in other words, not receiving any strokes — were more prone to emotional and physical difficulties. These infants lacked the cuddling, touching, and handling that most other infants received. Berne postulated that adults need need physical contact just like infants, but have learned to substitute other types of recognition instead of physical stimulation.
So while an infant needs cuddling, an adult craves a smile, a wink, a hand gesture, or other form of recognition. Berne defined the term recognition-hunger as this requirement of adults to receive strokes. Berne also reasoned that any stroke, be it positive or negative, is better than no strokes at all. This is an example of a positive stroke.
Your neighbor could also frown at you and say nothing. TA uses these symbols to analyse social relations and communications with individuals, groups, couples and families.
TA also offers a theory of child development using life scripts to explain how adult life patterns have originated in early childhood. The philosophy of TA is that people are OK and everyone has the capacity to think and make choices.
TA is a contractual psychotherapeutic approach where both the client and the therapist take joint responsibility for achieving positive outcomes. TA keeps open communication between a client and a therapist by both being fully informed about what is going on in their work together. Both parents were university graduates.
Eric used to accompany his father on medical rounds until he died, age 38, of tuberculosis. Eric was 11 at the time. As most psychiatrists from the mid-century, Berne had started his psychiatric practice as a psychoanalyst, influenced firstly by Freud and later by Paul Federn and Erik Erikson.
They strongly shaped his theoretical development and ideas on ego states. Between and Berne served as an army psychiatrist and rose to rank of a major. After the War, Berne resumed training in psychoanalysis under Erik Erikson. Origins of TA emerged in in a series of articles on intuition, which contradicted Freudian concepts of the unconscious.
In s Berne began clinical seminars where he and other colleagues tested out his new ideas. In , the Transactional Analysis idea was born and from that year TA gained popularity in international therapeutic community.
Berne published and presented theory, outlining his new model of diagnosis and therapy, originally focused on group work. Main concepts were outlined such as:.
During his later life, Berne maintained a heavy writing schedule until he died of a heart attack in During his lifetime Berne was married 3 times and had several children of his own. The Games People Play has been an international bestseller which has altered the way people think and how they understand relationships.
