The Parent, Child and Adult

Transactional Analysis Psychotherpay was developed by Eric Berne who took inspiration from Sigmund Freud's theory of the sugego, ego, ID. He proposed there are three ego states; the parent, child and adult. The parent is linked to upbringing, and life experiences. The child is linked to emotions and feelings towards external events. The adult is the ideal state, as this ego state can accept the emotion whilst still making a rational decesion based on life experiences and knowledge. This psychotherapy looks closes at which ego state the individual is in when communicating to further understand behaviour. You are taught to alter your ego state to reduce emotional problems.
