Eric Berne



March 1992 | 175 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`Ian Stewart has done an outstanding job of presenting a comprehensive overview of Eric Berne, his life, his philosophy and his significant contributions to the fields of personality and psychotherapy... Stewart has made a significant and unique contribution to the literature of transactional analysis. This book deserves reading by all transactional analysts' - Transactional Analysis Journal

Eric Berne is probably still best known as the author of the bestselling Games People Play, yet his professional writings on transactional analysis fill several books and his practice of psychotherapy was distilled from more than thirty years' experience of work with clients.

Ian Stewart draws Berne's ideas together in a unique and accessible form and concludes that Berne emerges not only as a skilled communicator but also as a profound thinker who offers a major contribution to counselling and psychotherapy this century.

`Stewart's report of people's reactions to Berne I found fascinating... the accounts of the complex theoretical ideas are masterful. I welcomed Stewart's clear statements about structure and his own main ideas... important studies for practising counsellors and psychotherapists and for scholars and others interested in the field of counselling... rewarding reading' - Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling

`a clear summary of Berne's work, both theory and practice' - British Journal of Medical Psychology

`An interesting and informative book' - Contemporary Psychology
