Transcript of "Behavioral diagnosis (Transactional analysis / TA is an integrative approach to the theory of psychology and psychotherapy). "

  3. 3. Behavioral diagnosis • In behavioral diagnosis, you judge which ego state a person is in by observing his behavior. • As you do so, you can see or hear: – Words. – Tones. – Gestures. – Postures. – Facial Expressions.
  4. 4. Standard clues • Its traditional for books about TA to give tables of standard clues for behavioral diagnosis. • For instance, wagging finger is said to fit with controlling parent. • But this is not what ego state model says.
  5. 5. Standard clues • When I say I am “ in my child”, I mean I am behaving, thinking and feeling as the child I once was – not just like any child. • It follows that for a reliable behavioral diagnosis of my Adapted Child ego state, you would need to know how I looked and sounded back in my childhood when I was obeying my parents.
  6. 6. Standard clues • The set of behavioral clues that define my Adapted Child or Free Child will be different from yours, because we were different children. • Because we had different parents, we will each have our own unique set of behaviors to mark Controlling or Nurturing parent.
  7. 7. Standard clues • Does this mean that tables of standard clues are useless? • No. There are some kinds of behavior that are typical to children in general and same with Parent and Adult. • Instead of using standard clues, it is better to draw up your own.
  8. 8. Activity • Take a sheet of paper and draw six vertical columns on it. • Head the left hand column “Clues from “. Head the other five columns with the five functional ego state labels you used in ego gram – CP, NP,A,FC and AC.
  9. 9. Activity • Go back to the column headed “Clues from –”. Evenly spaced down it, write five headings – words, tones, Gestures, Postures and facial expressions. • Draw in horizontal lines so that you finish up with give empty boxes, down each column. • The idea is that you fill in the behavioral clues for yourself in each column.
  10. 10. Standard clues • Sometimes when you are observing my behavioral clues, you may need to ask more questions to help you judge which of my ego states a particular behavior fits in.
  11. 11. Standard clues • Suppose you see me sitting in a drooping pose. I am leaning forward, head in hands. The corner of my mouth are turned down. I am sighing deeply, and my eyes filled with tears. • From all these clues, you gather that I am expressing sadness. But what ego state am I in?
  12. 12. Standard clues • Perhaps I have just heard that a close relative has died? My sadness then would be an appropriate response to the here and now, hence Adult. • Or I go back in contact with some memory of a loss I experienced when I was a child, and which I have never let myself be sad about until now. In that case, my feeling expression is from free Child. • Still another possibility is that I am replaying a negative Adapted Child pattern in which I droop and get sad as a way of manipulating the people around me.
  13. 13. Standard clues • To back up your assessment of my behavioral clues, you may want to ask questions about how other people relate to me. • You may ask about my personal history and what my parents were like. • And you may explore what I can re – experience from my own childhood.
