Transactional Analysis is growing in popularity as an approach, and this book provides and in-depth, comprehensive model of theory and practice, covering: the approach, the dynamics of the relationship, therapeutic transactions and wider implications.

Transactional Analysis: A Relational Perspective presents a relational model of psychotherapy which reflects the theoretical and methodological changes that have been evolving over recent years. In this book, Helena Hargaden and Charlotte Sills tell the story of their model through case history, theory and diagram illustrating how the unconscious process comes to life in the consulting room. Their relational theory and applied methodology of transactional analysis makes it possible to chart realms of uncertainty and the unknown, (deconfusion of the Child ego state), with theoretical assistance.
It looks at the whole therapeutic relationship, from the establishment of the working alliance, to the termination of therapy and beyond. It will be of great interest to post graduates and professionals in the field of psychotherapy. -- from the publisher
