Scripts People Live - Transactional Analysis Of Life Scripts (1974)

"Script analysis can be called a decision theory rather than a disease theory of emotional disturbance.  Script theory is based on the belief that people make conscious life plans in childhood or early adolescence which influence and amke predictable the rest of their lives.  Persons whose lives are based on such decisions are said to have scripts. In Scripts People Live, Steiner expands upon this belief to show that people are innately healthy but develop a pattern, or 'life script,' early in life based on the negative or positive influences of those around them."
