Letter from the ITAA President

The TA World Mourns the Loss of Claude Steiner

The ITAA is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Claude Steiner on 9 January 2017. He was one of the founding members of the ITAA, a long-time colleague of Eric Berne, and contributed enormously over the years to the development of TA theory and practice. Our condolences go out to his family and his many, many friends and admirers in the global TA community.

Below is a comment that ITAA President C. Suriyaprakash posted this morning on Claude’s timeline:

Dear Claude,

You have left an indelible mark on the TA landscape. Thousands continue to be touched by your thoughts and ideas and many are better off treading your footsteps. You will always be fondly remembered for keeping the legacy of Eric Berne alive long after he left and adding your special touch to transactional analysis!

Not many impact people's lives the way you have done. I'm proud to have met you and been touched by your theories. You continue to inspire me and score of others.

Rest in Peace!
