Transactional Analysis Approaches to Brief Therapy provides an insightfl guide which both informs and challenges. Rather than a single theory, TA has developed as a group of four schools which share a common philosophy, but place different emphasis on what occurs during the therapeutic process. Written by therapists at the leading edge of developments in TA, the book presents and differentiates each of these four approaches and includes: transcripts and commentaries showing how theory applies to practice, for example in treating post-traumatic stress or in achieving a one-session cure; a useful glossary of TA terms, as well as an appendix of Eric Berne's short script questionnaire
