Eric L. Berne Collection
The Eric L. Berne digital collection features scanned documents and images from six related collections held at UCSF Archives and Special Collections. Materials document the work of Eric Lennard Berne, a practicing psychiatrist, lecturer, and author, best known for his development of the theory of Transactional Analysis (TA). The author of eight major books, including the bestseller Games People Play, Berne was also a consultant in psychiatry at Mt. Zion Hospital and the McAuley Neuropsychiatric Institute (St. Mary’s Hospital) in San Francisco, and an Associate Psychiatrist and Lecturer in Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center. He founded the International Transactional Analysis Association (ITAA) in 1964.
Detailed processing and digitization for these materials were made possible by generous support from 17 TA Associations worldwide and many individual donors through the International Transactional Analysis Association.
