Transactional Analysis 3: gimmicks

Third in a series on TA, offering some of the metaphors I think can be useful in conceptualising and dealing with interactions. This third video takes a closer look at gimmicks and some different perspectives they can be viewed from — including gimmicks as faulty rules, faulty roles and faulty definitions — and then possible ways out.
