Embracing ourselves; the Voice Dialogue manual
Hal and Sidra Stone
Drawing on years of clinical experience, the authors take readers on a remarkable journey of self-discovery. The "sub personalities" that live with the self are explained, allowing readers to pursue their individual destinies.
The energetics of Voice Dialogue
This book presents an overview of the consciousness model developed by Hal & Sidra Stone, as a foundation to understand the energetic element in Voice Dialogue. It also utilizes selected
material from the esoteric healing traditions and Tai Chi Ch'uan, to give a larger understanding of basic principles operating in this facilitation technique. They enable movements and shifts
of energy patterns in transformational work.
Ian Stewart & Vann Joines
In this book, Ian Stewart and Vann Joines introduce you to the power of today’s transactional analysis. They present the ideas of current TA in straightforward, readable language, with a
wealth of illustrative examples.
TA Today is equally suitable for self-directed learning or as background reading for college courses. It gives full coverage of the syllabus for the ITAA official "101" basic examination. Throughout the book, exercises for individual and group use are integrated in the text. The authors say: "When you have completed these exercises, you will certainly know more about yourself than you did when you started. And you will learn TA in the most effective way possible - by using it for yourself."
I'm ok, you're ok
Thomas A. Harris
Transactional Analysis delineates three observable ego-states (Parent, Adult, and Child) as the basis for the content and quality of interpersonal communication. "Happy childhood" notwithstanding, says Harris, most of us are living out the Not OK feelings of a defenseless child, dependent onOK others (parents) for stroking and caring. At some stage early in our lives we adopt a "position" about ourselves and others that determines how we feel about everything we do. And for a huge portion of the population, that position is "I'm Not OK -- You're OK." This negative "life position" shared by successful and unsuccessful people alike, contaminates our rational Adult capabilities, leaving us vulnerable to inappropriate emotional reactions of our Child and uncritically learned behavior programmed into our Parent. By exploring the structure of our personalities and understanding old decisions, Harris believes we can find the freedom to change our lives.
