Resource Description

This book review was written for the Transactional Analysis Journal: "Since his original psychotherapeutic trainings many decades ago in Radix and Transactional Analysis, Bill Cornell (working in Pittsburgh, US) has been at the forefront of the creative endeavour to integrate these approaches, and to bring a relational perspective to them. Inspired by the ideas and practice of relational psychoanalysis, he has been writing for many years, and the book reviewed here is a collection of papers and articles published over the last 20 years or so. The book is mainly addressed to the community of Transactional Analysis practitioners, and mainly written in that professional language, but has trail-blazing relevance also for body-oriented and relational practitioners, and anybody ready to be inspired by a continuously growing, developing, questioning and inquisitive mind. Michael brings his own similar - and in some ways parallel - development into the review, raising many general questions about therapy and therapy training, its history and future."
