book offers a comprehensive overview of approaches to ego state work within
transactional analysis. It is intended to provide a coherent overview of the
state of the art in the theory of ego states in transactional analysis.
It begins with an
introduction to ego psychology with reference to the main psychoanalytic theorists
whose work has shaped TA as well as a description of ego states as first presented
by Eric Berne. The following chapters are contributions from leading clinicians
whose approach is largely founded in transactional analysis. These authors
present their own understanding of the ego states under discussion and describe
how they use the concept in their work. The final chapter is a review of the
various approaches presented with comments and afterthoughts by the editors.
for senior psychotherapy trainees and qualified psychotherapists both in TA
and in other approaches.
