Product Description

Review

A clear detailed account of the theory and practice of Transactional Analysis and of its relationship to psychoanalysis which he likens to that of an apple to its core. --New Society

Lays down the principles of transactional analysis in practical schematic terms which often makes them sound improbably, almost quaint in their simplicity… Its simplicity is one of its most attractive features. --New Psychiatry

It yields many refreshing new insights into motivation and behaviour, character and social integration, thus being useful in any psychotherapeutic approach. --New Psychiatry --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

Dr Berne's other works include 'The Structure and Dynamics of Organisations and Groups' (1963), in which he discussed the application of transactional analysis to group dynamics; 'Principles of Group Treatment' (1966); 'A Layman's Guide to Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis' (1968); and 'What Do You Say After You Say Hello?', written shortly before his death in 1970. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I am able to understand what I've read and can put it into practice, found it to help me understand why I get the reactions from others and how to workout what to do next.

If you're a TA student you've probably been referred to this seminal text by Eric Berne on your reading list. If like me you've an all round interest in analytical psychology you'll be keen to explore how TA fits into the continuum of psychotherapeutic theory. This book does that. Berne recounts his Freudian roots and his own mentors before explaining his own development of the ego state model. His case history illustrations are short and humorous unlike many other writers. It's an easy read if your familiar with the TA principles but not suitable for those wishing for a self help or introductory text. If you're a student of TA you'll be glad you've read it and be reassured that TA follows a tradition of proper psychoanalytic theory and not a pop psych', 'reach for the sky', Californi-fad.

I am shamed to admit that my knowledge and understanding of this incredible man is patchy and incomplete, I know somebody who is currently training in this expansive field and have learned a little about Eric Berne and TA from them.

As far as I can understand Transactional Analysis is a growing field in Psychotherapy, it deals with social relationships and interactions by helping clients to understand themselves and the world around them, this seems to me to combine client centred therapies with other mainstream elements of psychotherapy. I am not qualified to say for certain, and have only the conjectures of ignorance to offer.

I will therefore content myself to say that I am incredibly pleased with the service received, this item arrived in record time and in wonderful condition, your service was exceptional in every way and I thank you very much.

I bought this book to get a clearer picture of how this technique works and to understand it further. Unfortunately with this book it doesnt make it clear for me. Too many words i dont understand and i dont believe im thick, but i just got a little confused by it all. I am doing a course too so within that it made it much clearer than this book did to me, maybe someone else will just clearly see the wood from the trees but i dont recommend this for a beginner.

It is the original classic and definitive Transactional Analysis sourcebook. Not an easy-to-read guide, more a technical handbook/casebook focused only on the transactional model and which does not acknowledge scope to integrate with other therapeutic treatments, but then that's not its function.

This book, as with its companion book, gives an incisive psychological insight to the way people think and behave, in the context of Mind Games, and how they are played and classified. A must for those that are interested in what makes people tick.

The reviews for this book were very favourable and the reader was led to believe that the book had been written for a lay person to understand. IT WASN'T! Very high brow - didn't get past the first couple of pages
