The main values and principles of Transactional Analysis, in its original psychodynamic matrix, become a concrete experience in this book thanks to the accurate description of the daily practice of a long-experienced therapist: Anna Emanuela Tangolo. Analyzing several cases, the author examines the clinical tools of Berne’s group therapy and the analysis of dreams, without however neglecting other important aspects such as preparing the setting or leading an interview. Particular relevance is given to the therapeutic relationship, seen as the interweaving of an experience in order to send stimuli to the patient so as to re-structure his or her intrapsychic world through rigorous and precise inputs, analysable in linguistic sequences. This book is meant not only for those who study psychotherapy, but also for anyone who wants to learn about clinical TA and its functioning.

Reviews and Endorsements

‘This book is a major contribution to contemporary transactional analysis and one that advances Eric Berne’s original relational perspective. Anna Emanuela Tangolo achieves her task of integrating psychodynamic psychotherapy with transactional analysis by weaving a number of strands together – including a strong personal narrative, a grounding in aesthetics and aesthetic ways of knowing, good and poignant clinical examples, and the significance of spirituality – to create a tapestry that is not only rich in images (womb, acting, incubator, sailing, etc.), but also offers rich pickings for the reader and clinician.
Drawing on her knowledge of philosophy (Arendt, Gibran, Heidegger, Jaspers), psychology, and psychotherapy, Tangolo offers a clear, elegant, and often poetic narrative that outlines a sophisticated, yet practical, transactional analysis for the contemporary clinician. Other gems include an emphasis on listening, a great explication of Berne’s therapeutic operations, and the reclaiming of transactional analysis as a group therapy. This book is beautifully written and translated and worth buying for the introduction alone. I highly recommend it.’
— Keith Tudor, Associate Professor, Auckland University of Technology

‘Most of us have, for many years, been waiting for Anna Emanuela Tangolo to write about her long and intense activity as a psychotherapist, counsellor, and trainer. Her book suggests a personalised approach to the world of the transactional analytical literature. This book represents a very effective and enjoyable tool, which intends not to replace but to integrate with a more technical literature.’
— Michele Novellino, from the Preface
