Steve Karpman will present, “Berne, Darwin, and the Happiness Formula.” For this 50th anniversary of the ITAA, we take a journey back to the 1960’s origins of TA to re-create Berne’s early 202 seminars. We learn of Berne’s four rules of theory-making that started it all. The audience then breaks into small group “think tanks” to have fun brainstorming original TA theory and diagrams to present later to the awaiting audience. Will someone come up with a happiness formula? Or a new business game? Or a Pastime diagram?
In a companion exercise we go back to Darwinian evolution to find the three survival instincts underneath the Drama Triangle. The Compassion Triangle exercise demonstrates those six empathic escapes from the Drama Triangle.
Gloria Noriega will present,”The Transgenerational Script Questionnaire (TSQ): Application and Interpretation.” The TSQ is an aid to untangle the family tree. The TSQ is an effective instrument to start untangling the family tree. In a quick and clear way the participants will be able to understand the complex structure of their transgenerational script, as a pattern that unconsciously have been repeating within three to five generations. Through a brief didactic presentation and a group process, the participants will be able to differentiate their healthy and toxic family scripts to reinforce the former and redecide the latter, in a subsequent therapeutic work. The TSQ can be applied in individual and group sessions, for own benefit and for the relieve of further generations.
