Eric Berne, the originator of T.A., isolated and defined a basic unit of social intercourse - a transaction. If two or more people encounter each other, sooner or later one of them will speak or acknowledge the presence of the others - a transactional stimulus.
Another will then say or do something which is in some way related to that stimulus - a transactional response. In this course the student is given the opportunity to study and examine this transaction - "I do something and you do something back" - and learn how to determine which part of the multi-natured individual is being activated.
