Are you a Victim? A Persecutor? A Rescuer? 


These are roles defined by the Karpman Drama Triangle model, and they show up whenever there’s conflict.  As the drama unfolds, it’s common for you and others involved in conflict to take on one or more of these roles, and you may swap in and out of each role in turn.  It can become a never-ending spiral.

How can I break out of the Drama Triangle cycle?

This workshop will explain what’s going on in the Drama Triangle and will give you strategies to break out of the loop.  These drama roles are affiliated with functions defined by Jung’s theory of psychological type and also by archetypes defined by John Beebe’s “Whole Type” model.  You will be taught how these models affect the dynamics of the Drama Triangle you’re in, and how that knowledge can help you unravel it.

What does the program look like?

We will meet on a Zoom webinar three times, for one hour each session.
