Happy childhood notwithstanding, says Harris, most live out the Not ok feelings of a defenseless child, dependent on ok others (parents) for stroking & caring. At some stage early on we adopt a position about ourselves & others that determines how we feel about all we do. For many that position is Im Not OK-Youre OK. This negative life position, shared by successful & unsuccessful people alike, contaminates rational Adult capabilities, leaving us vulnerable to inappropriate emotional reactions of our Child & uncritically learned behavior programmed into our Parent. By exploring the structure of our personalities & understanding old decisions, he believes we can find the freedom to change.Authors NotePrefaceFreud, Penfield & BerneParent, adult & childThe four life positionsWe can changeAnalyzing the transactionHow we differHow we use timeP-A-C & marriageP-A-C & childrenP-A-C & adolescentsWhen is treatment necessary?P-A-C & moral valuesSocial implications of P-A-CIndex
