Transactional Analysis

by Mary Goulding
Watch Mary Goulding demonstrate Transactional Analysis in a live therapy session. By watching how quickly she brings her client to real depth work you'll understand why she was widely regarded as a true master therapist.

Part of the 15-video series: Psychotherapy with the Experts

Transactional Analysis
Mary and Bob Goulding developed Redecision Therapy, which combines elements of Transactional Analysis and Gestalt Therapy. Using positive strokes, encouragement, and bringing the past into the present, Goulding helps her clients change paths from decisions made at a young age. In this video, she helps her client Beverly act out pivotal childhood moments, return to her recently passed mother’s graveside for a final goodbye, and speak directly to her 12-year-old self, helping Beverly mourn losses and open new doors for the future. Hosts Jon Carlson and Diane Kjos introduce Goulding and facilitate an enlightening discussion on the approach.
