Ineffective Responses to Conflict

The drama triangle (sometimes known as the victim triangle) is a model of dysfunctional social interaction, created by psychotherapist Stephen Karpman. The triangle consists of  three ineffective, passive-aggressive responses to conflict. Participants playing a role in a drama triangle create misery for themselves and for others by playing either the Victim Role, Rescuer Role, or the Persecutor Role. The three psychological roles (or roleplays) which people often take in a situation are as follows. VICTIM– The person who is treated as, or accepts the role of, a victim. The play the “poor pitiful me” role. They: Feel victimized, oppressed, helpless, hopeless, powerless, ashamed They deny responsibility for their negative circumstances, and deny that they possess the power to change those circumstances. Look for a Rescuer

Leaving a Legacy

I witnessed a first hand testimony of a young man in his early twenties that was caught in the middle of anger and frustration due to the possible separation of his parents. His parents reached the point of what they thought was no return three years ago in their marriage and the son, at that point, decided he didn’t like his parents too much nor did he respect them for disrupting his security of having parents that were together. The reason that I tell this story is not to highlight what divorce or separation can do to kids, but to highlight intentional living by parents. You see, the mother in this situation decided to get some help and direction. Due to her taking action and

Thought and Character

As the plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so every act of man springs from the hidden seeds of thought, and could not have appeared without them. This applies equally to those acts called “spontaneous” and “unpremeditated” as to those which are deliberately executed.

Creative Communication (Part 2)

Empowerment Language is used to self-empower rather than self-sabotage. Making statements based on TRUTH (self-empowerment) rather than LIES (self-sabotage) opens the creative process. When we use Empowerment Language it creates a solution model rather than a permission model. Permission Model *    Muted tone of voice and distant *    Closed and ashamed body language *     Soft and sporadic eye contact *    Doubtful and weak attitude When a person is working from the Permission Model, they are working from the victim role. They are looking through the typical glasses or lenses that haven’t been challenged. The Permission Model creates a set of behaviors that are not working for the individual. It is like running into walls time after time, all day long. In the Victim Role, a
