Its been along time since I studied TA also and much of what I learned was from borrowed journals and seminars. some of the basics is that in childhood, we write a life script and for people my age one can get an idea of what that is by studing the fairy tales. For younger people you look at TV and the movies.Some scrips will be very successful and some will be distructive. Script therapy is finding your script and changing those parts that are distructive.TA is a very intellectual methodogy, but using everyday words. So therapy must include other methods to reach the emotions to make the actual changes. One of the things that I learned is that in every strong emotion there is another layer. Caution: This type of therapy must be done by an expert. I would not try it. My teacher would only do this if a client actually lived with him for a time before and after and when at least 6 strong men were there to help and also some very loving women to help. Also any type of rebirthing should be done with the same caution. Some rebirthers have not had the training neccessary. Back to scripting, I would think MF got his scripting from movies, either in movie house or on TV. One of my scripts is from "Over the Rainbow". I'm adpoted and looked for my roots. Where is Kansas. Actually my daughter a geneologist has found them. I guess she is the wizzard. To actually find the script you have to have the client to tell you the story, because they may have interpreting it completly differently. One of my fairy tales, as I remember it, is completly different from the actual story. Now in order to make his plans, he had to have his adult functioning or the adult that is in the child had to function. I see that his prejudice is either negetive parent or adapted child. Parent position says "you should," while the child may say "I'm gonna get you." An adult is very logical. "To frame him, I will need to do X and Y" The idea may come from the child but to be successful, has to be checked from the adult. All this is kinda speculative, without haveing the client in frount of you. Gotta get to learn what that particular gesture means to that client. TA is one of the simplest psycological models and one of the hardest. Zen stuff. He is a very complicated person, and therefore has very complicated script. We know his script was to kill, cause he did it. and we can be pretty sure he got it from the movies. The question is "At the end of the script does he get caught?"
