First of all, they will be considered in Berne’s theory, with specific reference to the content of the Ego states. Then more contemporary perspectives coming from new approaches in TA and from neuroscience will be explored, taking into account the brain modifications that happen during the mother–child relationship and the importance of intersubjectivity.
