Berne drew on many different influences while developing his thinking about ego states, particularly during the early days of expounding transactional analysis theory. By the time of his death, in 1970, he had presented several variations of his original structural ego state model, which was typical of the creative, integrative, and developmental approach to theory that defined him.

Maybe an unavoidable consequence of his creativity, however, Berne seemed unconcerned by the inconsistencies that began to appear as he made these creative, albeit contradictory leaps, particularly around the way that he thought about the second-order structure(s) and the nature of the Adult Ego State. Berne’s early death meant that these discrepancies were never addressed by him. As a result, and no doubt inspired by both his creativity and creative leaps, Berne inspired those who came after him to keep advancing and clarifying his original ideas.

Each member of this this Round Table Discussion, has been thus inspired and so will talk and critique together the ways in which they have subsequently made sense of and adopted a model or models of ego states that helps them to think about and anchor their work.
