Abstract

Different societies have different ways through which traumatic experiences are handled. This shapes their identity. This chapter will use Eric Berne's psychotherapist transactional analysis theory to emphasize how people relate to one another and establish the extent communications influences human behaviours. The author indicates how the theory underscores societies' and individuals' representations of violent conduct by examining the traumatic experiences of some societies like the Yukpa people and the Jews during and after the Holocaust. Thematic areas will include identity and violence, trauma of war, and group construction of violence, among others. All of these themes are interconnected. Finally, the relevance of this work is to minimize interpersonal and organizational conflicts as well as promote tolerance of divergent views.
