  3. 3. The script and the life course “The script is what the person planned to do in early childhood and the life course is what actually happens.” - Eric Berne
  4. 4. The script and the life course • Your life course is the result of four interacting factors: –Heredity. –External Events. –Script. –Autonomous decision.
  5. 5. The script and the life course • My inheritance of genes largely determines my physical make up. • It may also help determine my mental characteristics, though there is still no agreement in the nature vs nurture argument. • Even if I decided to become an athlete and heredity gave me a moderately fast and strong body, I may do better to find a different way of fulfilling myself.
  6. 6. The script and the life course Perhaps my early decision was to live to a healthy old age. I may be unfortunate enough to be caught in a fire, earthquake or plane crash, even though I have not set up in anyway for such an outcome. A chance external event has cut across my decision to live.
  7. 7. The script and the life course • Whether or not I undertake formal therapy, many of my life decisions can be taken with full use of my grown up resources. • We say that these decision are script free or autonomous. • When I make an autonomous decision, I am dealing with here and now reality as the adult I am now.
