  3. 3. Content • Definition. – Stewart and Jones (1987). – Claude Steiner (1974). – Novey (1993). – Harris and Harris (1985). • Planetary Okayness.
  4. 4. Okayness • Stewart and Jones (1987) seemed to define the degree of OKness a person feels as the "essential value" (that one perceives in oneself and others. • This implies that it is more than just behaviour.
  5. 5. Okayness • Steiner (1974) gave a more philosophical definition of OKness. • He said that Berne had a conviction and "'faith in human nature“ about the OKness of people. • As a result, we all are OK, even those who commit the most heinous deeds. • Such individuals are not responsible for their genes or early backgrounds and thus are OK, even though their behavior is not.
  6. 6. Okayness • For his part, Novey sees OKness as meaning "I am an acceptable human being, with the right to live and meet my needs, and you are an acceptable human being with the right to live and get your needs met.“ • For him, "rights" and "acceptability" are used in defining OKness.
  7. 7. Okayness • Harris and Harris (1985) saw OKness almost as a comparison of following between a child and his or her parents: – Strength – Power and – Dependency
  8. 8. Planetary Okayness • Another aspect of life positions is taken up by Pearl Drego (2008). • He talked about the environmental crisis affecting the earth as “scripty and suicidal”. It is a position of the extreme antisocial (I+ U-T-) or hopelessness (I-U- T-). • Issues such as climate change, water shortages, marine pollution etc. are all global problems – that can overwhelm us with their scale and complexity.
  9. 9. Planetary Okayness • It is at the small group level that we can create and maintain healthy life positions including other groups, nations and importantly future generations. • Then maybe we can step back from the hopelessly suicidal and antisocially homicidal positions.
