Summary

Author Notes

Eric Berne was born Leonard Bernstein on May 10, 1910, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Berne earned an M.D. degree in 1935, and practiced psychiatry in New York. By 1943, he had become an U.S. citizen and took the name Eric Berne. After serving in the U.S. Army Medical Corps, he moved to Carmel, California, and in 1946 published his first book The Mind in Action.

Berne is credited with developing a new approach to group psychotherapy known as Transactional Analysis. His 1964 exploration of human relationships, Games People Play, became popular with the public, but was received with cool skepticism by the professional psychiatric community. Berne went on to write more than a dozen books between 1964 and 1970.

Berne died on July 15, 1970, in Monterey, California, having suffered two heart attacks within a few days.
