Introducing The Karpman Drama Triangle

Stephen Karpman, a Transactional Analysis, has created an incredibly important tool called the "Drama Triangle." Having learned of it some 8 years ago, it has been one of the most important tools in my personal, as well as professional life. 

Karpman named the three roles on the Drama Triangle: Persecutor, Rescuer and Victim.  He then placed them on an upside down triangle representing the three faces of victim. Even though only one is called Victim, all three originate out of and end up back there. Therefore they are all stopping places on the road to victim-hood. We each have a most familiar, or starting gate position.

Simply stated, every dysfunctional interaction takes place on the Drama Triangle!  Recognizing the triangle, as well as the roles that people play in it, is indeed, most helpful.
