Format: Hardcover
Eric Berne (1910-1970; born as Eric Bernstein, he changed his name in 1943) was a Canadian-born psychiatrist, who wrote many popular (even "trendy," in the 1960s) books such as A Layman's Guide to Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis, Structure and Dynamics of Organizations and Groups, Games People Play, Principles of Group Treatment, etc.

He wrote in the Preface to this 1961 book, "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 at Mount Zion Hospital in San Francisco [etc.]... 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." (Pg. 11)

He says in the Introduction, "An ego state may be described phenomenologically as a coherent system of feelings related to a given subject, and operationally as a set of coherent behavior patterns; or pragmatically, as a system of feelings which motivates a related set of behavior patterns." (Pg. 17) He adds, "Colloquially, these types of ego states are referred to as Parent, Adult, and Child...

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Transactional Analysis in Psychotherapy © 1961 (TAinP) ****½ +
Games People Play: The Basic Handbook of Transactional Analysis. © 1964 (GPP) ****¾ +
Scripts People Live: Transactional Analysis of Life Scripts © 1974 (SPL) *****

All three of these books have been around for a long time, and all three are well worth reading. I was persuaded to review them together by the first sentence in the preface of GPP: "This book is primarily designed to be a sequel to my book Transactional Analysis in Psychotherapy, but has been planned so that it can be read and understood independently." In the years between writing them, it is obvious that Dr. Berne gained valuable experience in one or (more likely) both TA and writing. I am sure I would have found TAinP much tougher going had I not read GPP first, and I recommend you, too, read them in reverse order. You might even consider reading Claude Steiner's SPL first; Dr. Steiner has surpassed even his mentor, Dr. Berne, in making the concepts of TA accessible to the lay reader.

You don't have to have serious emotional problems, or have a friend or loved one who does, to benefit from reading these books; they will help you to understand yourself and others better.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Like so many others, I found Eric Berne's work incredibly liberating. Resisting the games people play and recognizing, not only the inner child, but the inner adult, and the inner parent in myself and others has made transaction and interaction much more sane for me. A great work!
