As grown ups, we sometimes replay the strategies we decided upon as infants. At these times, we respond to here and now reality as if it were the world we pictured in our early decisions. When we do so, we are said to be in script or we are engaging in scripty behavior.

  3. 3. The script in adult life • As grown ups, we sometimes replay the strategies we decided upon as infants. • At these times, we respond to here and now reality as if it were the world we pictured in our early decisions. • When we do so, we are said to be in script or we are engaging in scripty behavior.
  4. 4. The script in adult life • Why don’t we just leave our infant decisions behind as we grow up? • The primary reason is that we are still hoping to resolve the basic issue that was left unresolved in our infancy : how to get unconditional love and attention. • Thus as adults, we frequently react as if we were still infants.
  5. 5. The script in adult life • When we get into script, we are usually not aware that we are re enacting infant strategies. • We can predict when one gets into script by two factors. – When the here and now situation is perceived as stressful. – When there is some resemblance between the here and now situation and a stressful situation in childhood.
