This is a short paper, set out in 5 sections/chapters that deal with some of the main concepts of this important Humanistic Theory of Therapy 
 
Part 1
TRANSACTIONAL ANALYSIS ( T A )AN INTRODUCTION
' Every human being is born a Prince or a Princess ; early experiences convince some that they are frogs ,and the rest of the pathological development follows this'
Eric Berne 1966
BACKGROUND AND BASIC ASSUMPTIONS
 
TA is a form of therapy devised by Eric Berne and modified by others. It is based onsome basic assumptions . These are founded on the quotation (from Berne) and on thebasic statement that
' people are OK. ' 
It expands this as in the following way:
1. People are OK (I'm OK - You Are OK.)
Everybody has a capacity to think(most people unless they have some damage to their brain) )People decide their own destiny and can change
2. Secondly, that people have an in-built drive towards both mental and physical
 
health
 People live in two different, but related, worlds. These worlds are :
* An Inner World
This is a world of dreams, emotions, fears, hopes andmemories. This world contains feelings and images of both ourselves andothers. It is our private world.
* An Outer World
In this outer world we act out our beliefs and feelings.This is the world where we
act out 
our
' games ' , roles' and transactions'

How and what we do in our inter-personal relationships depends upon the relationshipwe have between these two worlds.. Are they
congruent
or in
conflict
. These states ofcongruency or conflict vary with time and circumstances.Berne was originally a psychoanalyst and TA has its roots in this approach or model ofcounselling. However, it has (like Gestalt) developed over many years in the HumanisticApproach to counselling and it uses many of the concepts of Person CentredCounselling. It is a highly experiential model and requires a mainly practical and not atheoretical approach. However, it has a strong theoretical foundation. This series ofnotes will deal with the theoretical aspects but will be backed up by a complementaryseries of practical exercises which will influence our approach to all our work in TA.
PERSONALITY AND EGO STATES
 Our basic personality is based on many things. Much of it is unknown - unconscious and,as many psychoanalysts believe, primitive. It is affected by many influences - family,culture, religion social life etc. However, self- awareness, and encouragement of itsgrowth, enables us to understand our two worlds and to make sense of their congruenceand conflict. This conflict often takes the form of an
' inner dialogue' 
. The task of TAcounselling , and all growth in self - awareness, is to allow individuals to get in touch withthis inner dialogue, make sense of it and grow towards their full and true potential.
