Eric Berne Facebook Page

Once on the page, be sure to “like” it.

Please note that there is another Eric Berne page on Facebook.  That page is NOT affiliated with the family of Eric Berne.  This website along with the new Facebook page above is directly affiliated with and maintained by family members of Eric Berne.

To celebrate the launch of the Facebook page, we recently uncovered Eric Berne’s certificate of Fellowship status in the American Psychiatric Association granted May 19, 1949.  Below is a thumbnail copy. Clicking on it will yield you a high resolution copy.

Enjoy! Website Upgrade Complete

The long overdue upgrade of this site to a new platform is finally complete. All of the old content from the previous website has been migrated over. There may be a couple of residual typing mistakes and formatting issues present, but those will be resolved over the next couple of weeks.

Over the next couple of months, additional new content will be added.

Below is a never before seen photo of Lieutenant Eric Berne taken of him likely in 1943.  Please see the photographs page and check back regularly for new photos, drawings, and other memorabilia.

New Website Platform

The website was first started in 1999 as a tribute to my grandfather Dr. Eric Berne MD.  I did a major overhaul in 2004 adding significant content.  This update was long overdue and was in part a tribute to the death of my mother Ellen Berne, who was Eric’s first daughter.  After this update, the site became the premier destination on the internet for information on Eric Berne.

The site grew a bit stale as static HTML pages went out of style. I then upgraded the site starting on 16 January 2013. As of today, 19 January 2013, the upgrade is approximately 90% complete.  Please excuse any broken links as I am working hard to correct them.

Stay tuned for more updates.
