The Transactional Analyst in Action: Clinical Seminars

Overview

This book was born out of the demands, which are more and more informed, for a manual that gathers in a didactic and systematic way that which is considered ?the tool-box? of a modern transactional analyst. In fact, from the publication in 1966 of the work by Eric Berne, Principles of Group Treatment, one cannot find a work which condenses the operative principles of the transactional method, for how it has developed in the most widespread methodological tendencies, while there exist books on technique about ...

Overview

This book was born out of the demands, which are more and more informed, for a manual that gathers in a didactic and systematic way that which is considered “the tool-box” of a modern transactional analyst. In fact, from the publication in 1966 of the work by Eric Berne, Principles of Group Treatment, one cannot find a work which condenses the operative principles of the transactional method, for how it has developed in the most widespread methodological tendencies, while there exist books on technique about single orientations. The topics are presented in a way to offer both students and psychotherapists an assimilable version of what the current panorama of transactional techniques offers, in particular those of a psychodynamic orientation, but giving ample space to the redecisional techniques. Less noted techniques are illustrated, like the intervention on the Parents and others that are more recent.

The focus of the manual is on the technical aspects of the analytic transactional intervention, in this way integrating the previous works on the epistemology and the methodology (The clinical approach to transactional analysis of 1998), and on the psychoanalytic roots of the Bernean work (Transactional Pychoanalysis of 2004). This book represents a synthesis of more than thirty years dedicated to the spreading and teaching of transactional analysis, and will be useful to students, directors and professors of the schools of transactional analysis, and also to therapists of other schools, providing an up-to-date and complete idea of the current state of the analytic transactional methodology.
