The Drama Triangle – Part 5

The Drama Triangle to understand (and change) dysfunctional relationships

In part 1 I introduced the 3 roles of Persecutor, Rescuer and Victim.

Then I explained in part 2 why we enter into the Triangle and how everything starts, followed by several examples of situations with Persecutors, Rescuers and Victims.

You discovered tools to get out of the Drama Triangle in part 3.

In part 4 you could check what you know about the DramaTriangle.
