Games people play; the psychology of human relationships by Eric Berne( Book )

228 editions published between 1954 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 5,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eric Berne developed the technique of transactional analysis in group therapy, and here presents his findings to the general public in a witty and entertaining best-seller. He shows how people can achieve a new self-awareness by analyzing their behavior in terms of "games." People tend to live their lives by consistently playing out certain games in their interpersonal relationships. They play these games for a variety of reasons: to avoid confronting reality, to conceal ulterior motives, to rationalize their activities, or to avoid actual participation. These games -- if they are not destructive -- are both desirable and necessary, and here Dr. Berne offers an analysis of 36 common games, which he breaks down into seven major categories
What do you say after you say hello? : the psychology of human destiny by Eric Berne( Book )

68 editions published between 1972 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a psychiatrist, Dr. Berne found that each person, in early childhood--under the powerful influence of his parents--writes his own script that will determine the general course of his life. That script dictates what kind of person he will marry, how many children he will have, even what kind of bed he will die in. Most of all, it determines whether he will be a winner or a loser, a spendthrift or a skinflint, a tower of strength or a doomed alcoholic. Some people, says Berne, have scripts that call for them to fail in their professions, or to be repeatedly disappointed in love, or to be chronic invalids. Here, he demonstrates how each life script gets written, how it works, and how each of us can break free of it to help us attain real autonomy and true fulfillment
Transactional analysis in psychotherapy : a systematic individual and social psychiatry by Eric Berne( Book )

86 editions published between 1961 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was only after Dr Eric Berne's 'Games People Play' became an international bestseller in 1964, that transactional analysis, his highly original and innovative approach to psychotherapy, attained wide recognition outside the United States. Over the past ten years, however, the principles and practices of 't.a.' have intrigued not only professional therapists but all those who seek to understand human personality and the peculiarities of human relationships. 'Transactional Analysis in Psychtherapy', the book in which he first laid out the principles of his method, has become a classic in its field, and is now published for the first time in Britain."--Book jacket

Que dites-vous après avoir dit bonjour? by Eric Berne( Book )

29 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in French and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ce livre, qui révèle les principes de base de l'analyse transactionnelle, découverte par le Dr Eric Berne, est l'un des plus significatifs et des plus importants de son oeuvre. Cette méthode d'analyse propose en effet un théorie nouvelle : la personnalité d'un individu serait composée de trois éléments : le parent, l'adulte, l'enfant. Notre destin serait donc conditionné dès l'enfance par un "scénario" qui dicterait toutes nos actions, entraînerait nos échecs et nos réussites. Est-il possible de se libérer de ce scénario ? Oui, répond Eric Berne en proposant un questionnaire qui permet au lecteur de découvrir le pourquoi profond de ses actes. Ce livre est déjà un classique de la thérapie moderne. Aussi important que les grands textes de Freud, auxquels il apporte un complément éminemment utile : l'efficacité immédiate."--Éditeur

Qué dice usted después de decir "hola"? La psicologia del destino humano by Eric Berne( Book )

42 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"¿Qué dice usted después de decir hola? Esta pregunta tan simple contiene, según el autor, todas las cuestiones básicas de la vida humana. La charla ordinaria está plagada de unos condicionantes adquiridos bajo la poderosa influencia de los padres y educadores, una basura mental que lastra nuestra comunicación con los demás y la forma en que nos desenvolvemos a lo largo de la vida. Eric Berne explica que cada persona edifica en la infancia un guion capaz de determinar el rumbo de su vida, sobre todo prescribe si será un triunfador o un fracasado. En estas páginas, trufadas de ingenio e ironía, desvela cómo se configura un guion vital en cada uno de nosotros, cómo funciona y cómo es posible liberarse de él para alcanzar la realización personal."--Cubierta trasera
