Transactional Analysis (TA) is a personality and psychotherapy for personal growth. It has wide applications in Clinical Psychology, organizations and education also.
Dr.Eric Berne, the originator of TA, considers a transaction as the unit of social intercourse. A transaction consists of a transactional stimulus (TS) and a transactional response (TR). TS is the behavior (verbal or nonverbal) produced by one person in acknowledgement of the presence of others when two or more people encounter each other. TR is the response to TS by another person.
Three Ego states namely: PARENT, ADULT & CHILD exists in all people.
People change from one state to another in the course of their transactions. This change can be easily noticed by the manners, appearances, words, gestures, and tones.
