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

389 editions published between 1964 and 2015 in 21 languages and held by 6,327 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.--Adapted from publisher description
What do you say after you say hello? : the psychology of human destiny by Eric Berne( Book )

181 editions published between 1972 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 3,014 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 )

114 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 2,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. If 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"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)

17 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mit seinen ausgiebigen Studien zur Intuition hat Eric Berne das Phänomen des intuitiven Erkennens der "Wahrheit" des anderen erfasst. In diesem Buch legt er sehr anschaulich das Wesen, die Funktion und die auf die Struktur der einzelnen Ich-Zustände bezogene Psychodynamik der Intuition dar. Er vermittelt damit eine differenzierte, schlüssige Ich-Psychologie der Transanktionsanalyse; er gibt anhand vieler Beispiele aus seiner psychiatrischen Tätigkeit auch wertvolle Hinweise zum Verständnis und zur Anwendung der Intuition in der praktischen Arbeit. In diesem Buch finden der Theorie-Interessierte und der Praktiker genügend Material zum Mitdenken und Nachexperimentieren. Darüber hinaus gewährt es Einblicke in Bernes eigene Psychologie und seinen Umgang mit - z.T. sehr kranken - Menschen. Das macht ihn und sein Werk liebens- und lesenswert. Ein Schlüsselwerk des Begründers der Transaktionsanalyse. Jeder Transaktionsanalytiker sollte diesen Klassiker einmal gelesen haben. Übrigens: Das Thema Intuition ist heute noch genauso aktuell wie zur Zeit der Niederschrift dieser Texte vor reichlich 40 Jahren. Wer sich - welcher therapeutischen Richtung auch immer verbunden - heute kompetent zur Intuition äußern will, kommt an diesem Werk von Eric Berne nicht vorbei
