    The video seemed to suggest that the goal was to become the adult, rather than the healthier version of Child and Parent. Is that what you're saying?

    yes, I mean i can understand the cause and effect aspect of the interactions and the patterns of certain behaviors, but at the same time, I get anoyed with the labeling of certain behaviors into preferential catagories as examples. Like your goal is to do this if you are to be this. I don't think it always works that way, and I think people who define others through this so called understanding are missing out on the bigger picture.

    The video was accurate in defining patterns of behavior but I think essentially the goal is distorted, or it at least held subtle propaganda for a "better" way of reacting.

    Well, there are better ways of reacting. I drop the "re." Heh. It's one model of many to chose from.

    Yes, Edahn. As I typed I realized that I couldn't remember if the final goal was to integrate all parts into the healthy adult. That makes sense. In that case the healthy child and healthy parent would be of a part with the healthy adult.

    Dang. Now I've gotta go watch the blasted video I suppose. A moment.

    Yes, you are correct Edahn. I watched the relationship one. Funny how sometimes I think I've got a handle on something and then as I begin to talk about it, realize that I've forgotten.

    Didn't he do a good job of explaining? I think so.

    I especiallly liked the remark about discomfort and staying in the here and now. The being present in the moment is a lot more difficult than it sounds. But I do think it is that sense of sudden jarring discomfort in a relationship which is the key to recognizig when I've slipped into a different state than my healthy adult state.

    And his comment about staying connected was useful. Too often these cross interactions lead to a cold silence/disconnection between people.

    And, whoa! Did I hear him slip in a little passive/aggressive zinger there toward the end? Hah. Psychologists are people too.

    That makes sense about integrating them all into a healthy adult.

    The ego states map nicely to the theory of 8 function/archetypes in the following way:

    Healthy Adult = Heroic (Dominant) Function #1
    Healthy Parent = Good Parent (Auxiliary) Function #2
    Healthy Child = Paer/Puella (Tertiary) Function #3

    Unhealthy Adult = Oppositional Function #5
    Unhealthy Parent = Witch/Senex Function #6
    Unhealthy Child = Trickster Function #7
