THIS book outlines a unified system of individual and social psychiatry as it has been taught during the past five years at the Group Therapy Seminar of Mount Zion Hospital in San Francisco, at the Monterey Peninsula Clinical Conference in Psychiatry, at the San Francisco Social Psychiatry Seminars, and more recently at Atascadero State Hospital, and the Langley Porter Neuropsychiatric Institute. This approach is now being used by therapists and group workers in various institutional settings, as well as in private practice, to deal with almost every type of mental, emotional, and characterological disturbance. The growing interest in and wider dissemination of its principles have indicated a need for this book, since it has become increasingly difficult to fulfill all the requests for lectures, reprints, and correspondence. The writer has had the privilege of visiting mental hospitals in about thirty different countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the islands of the Atlantic and Pacific, and has taken the opportunity of testing the principles of structural analysis in various racial and cultural settings. Their precision and predictive value have stood up rather well under particularly rigorous conditions requiring the services of interpreters to reach people of very exotic mentalities. Since structural analysis is a more general theory than orthodox psychoanalysis, the reader will be fairer to himself and to the writer if he resists, initially at least, the understandable temptation to try to fit the former into the latter. It the process is reversed, as it should be, it will be found that psychoanalysis easily finds its place methodologically as a highly specialized aspect of structural analysis. For example transactional analysis, the social aspect of structural analysis, reveals several different types of “crossed transactions.” The multifarious phenomena of transference are almost all subsumed under just one of these types, here denoted “Crossed Transaction Type I.” Other examples of the relationship between psychoanalysis and structural analysis are given in the text.

When Claude Steiner and the late Eric Berne developed the theory of Transactional Analysis, their basic belief that people were “born princes and princess, until their parents turned them into frogs” countered the fundamental principle of psychiatry which asserts that emotional and mental distress comes from within. This theory was further developed in Steiner’s book Games Alcoholics Play. Dr. Berne, in What Do You Say After You Say Hello?, acknowledged Steiner’s important role in the analysis of “life scripts” which we choose at an early age and which rule every detail of our lives until our death. In Scripts People Live, Steiner expands upon this belief to show that people are innately healthy but develop a pattern early in life based upon negative or positive influences of those around them. Thus children decide, however unconsciously, whether they will be happy or depressed, winners or failures, strong or dependent, and having decided, they spend the rest of their lives making the decision come true. For those who choose a negative script, the consequences can be disastrous unless they make a conscious decision to change. Steiner’s classic in psychological theory, with a new foreword by the author, offers a hopeful and practical analysis so that we all may rewrite our life scripts and lead more meaningful and fulfilling lives.

This thoroughly revised edition of Transactional Analysis Counselling introduces the theory and practice of TA - which integrates cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic theories within a humanistic philosophy - from a unique relational perspective. While most TA books focus on one field, this approach demonstrates the benefits of TA across a wide variety of helping settings, business and management, education and coaching as well as counselling. Case studies from a variety of contexts bring TA to life for trainees in any of these disciplines, and the accessible, engaging writing style makes difficult concepts understandable for undergraduates and postgraduates alike. Bringing their book into the twenty-first century, expert authors Phil Lapworth and Charlotte Sills provide a brief history of TA followed by individual chapters on the concepts and techniques used. Each chapter is devoted to one concept and includes a detailed definition and description, and suggestions for application in practice. Exercises for student, practitioner and client, boxed summaries, diagrams, checklists and sources of further reading make this the ideal text for use in training. This book is an essential companion for those embarking on specialist TA courses or studying TA as part of wider training, while those who want simply to integrate TA into their work with people can dip into it as suits their needs.

Do you realise you, and all the people you know, play games? All the time? Sexual games, marital games, complex games that you’re not even aware of as you go about your usual life? You might play games like ‘Alcoholic’ or ‘The Frigid Woman' at weekends, or perhaps 'Ain't it awful' or ‘Kick me’ while you’re at work. First published in the 1960s and recognized as a classic work of its kind by professionals, the bestselling ‘Games People Play’ is also an accessible and fascinating read. It is a wise, original, witty and very sensible analysis of the games we play in order to live with one another – and with ourselves.

After fifty years of development and refinement in Transactional Analysis (TA), the theory of methods and the actual methods have changed considerably from those originally published by Eric Berne. Many concepts and methods have emerged and been subject to clinical experimentation, some have been refined and expanded and some are no longer used. This book includes contributions from several authors, each of whom presents his or her unique focus on how TA is used in their psychotherapy practice. This book will address the therapeutic effectiveness of various methods in TA and will cover a variety of topics such as unconscious experience, transference-countertransference, the therapist’s transparency, transgenerational scripts, trauma and regression, psychological games, the self-destructive client, an integrative approach to the psychotherapy of obsession, gender psychopolitics, and psychotherapy from a social-cognitive perspective. It is written for both psychotherapists and counsellors who want to learn and refine their knowledge of contemporary TA methods that are most effective with today’s clients. With contributions from William F. Cornell, Elana Leigh, Ray Little, Gloria Noriega Gayol, Amaia Mauriz-Etxabe, Karen Minikin, John R. McNeel, Charlotte Sills, Jo Stuthridge, Moniek Thunnissen, Maria Teresa Tosi, Keith Tudor, and Tony White. Foreword by James R. Allen.

Co-Creative Transactional Analysis

Co-creative transactional analysis is an approach to a particular branch of psychology which, as the phrase suggests, emphasises the “co-” (mutual, joint) aspect of professional relationships, whether therapeutic, educative and/or consultative – and, by implication, of personal relationships. The “co-” of co-creative acknowledges the transactional, inter-relational, mutual, joint, and co-operative, as well as partnership. With its roots in field theory and social constructivism, and based on guiding principles which emphasise “we” psychology, shared responsibility, and present-centred development, co-creative transactional analysis offers a re-reading of transactional analysis – and, more broadly, of other approaches to psychology and psychotherapy – which emphasises health alongside illness and pathology; dialogue and discourse; the active engagement and participation of the therapist in the therapeutic endeavour; and the potential and possibilities of relationships and therapeutic relating. Co-creative transactional analysis is very much part of the contemporary concern regarding the “relational turn” in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and counselling, and represents a “two-person psychology’ and, arguably, a “two-person-plus psychology”. Developed by the authors over some fifteen years, the co-creative approach has found a resonance not only amongst psychotherapists, but also educationalists, consultants and coaches. The book itself represents and reflects the co-creative approach in that is based on a critical dialogue between the authors themselves about their collaborative and independent work, as well as between invited contributors and the authors. It is anticipated that the book will further the constructivist approach to therapy and coaching whereby meaning constantly evolves through dialogue, discourse creates systems and the co-creation of new or novel experiences and narratives provide new relational possibilities or ways of being with each other.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy with Transactional Analysis

Theory and Narration of a Living Experience

Author: Anna Emanuela Tangolo

Publisher: Karnac Books

ISBN: 1781814015

Category: Psychology

Page: 192

View: 2158

The main values and principles of Transactional Analysis, in its original psychodynamic matrix, become a concrete experience in this book thanks to the accurate description of the daily practice of a long-experienced therapist: Anna Emanuela Tangolo. Analyzing several cases, the author examines the clinical tools of Berne's group therapy and the analysis of dreams, without however neglecting other important aspects such as preparing the setting or leading an interview. Particular relevance is given to the therapeutic relationship, seen as the interweaving of an experience in order to send stimuli to the patient so as to re-structure his or her intrapsychic world through rigorous and precise inputs, analysable in linguistic sequences. This book is meant not only for those who study psychotherapy, but also for anyone who wants to learn about clinical TA and its functioning.

What Do You Say After You Say Hello? explains what makes the winners win, the losers lose, and the in-betweens so boring... In it, Dr Eric Berne reveals how everyone's life follows a predetermined script - a script they compose for themselves during early childhood. The script may be a sad one, it may be a successful one; it decides how a person will relate to his colleagues, what sort of person he will marry, how many children he will have, and even what sort of bed he will die in... What Do You Say After You Say Hello? demonstrates how each life script gets written, how it works and, more important, how anyone can improvise or change his script to make a happy ending...
