Product Description

Product Description

Many of us are on the Drama Triangle without even realising. We struggle to understand why people behave as they do, and why they choose dysfuntional, repetitive behaviours. We can't understand why some are habitually dependent, while others are exhaustingly self-sacrificing or unfairly unkind.

If you want to improve your understanding of the Human race, the Drama Triangle will help.

Once you understand three archetypal roles - the Victim, the Persecutor and the Rescuer, you can identify when you have been on the Drama Triangle in the past, if you are playing it now and who is inviting you to take up one of the roles in their Triangle.

Essential reading for everyone, this book is easy to read and even easier to understand, providing a gentle introduction to this dynamic area of Transactional Analysis.

5.0 out of 5 stars A helpful read. 21 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I found this book to be a helpful read, as, in my opinion, it gave good insight to some not too uncommon human behaviours. The brief summary approach gave me sufficient material to easily grasp thought processes that can go on in each of our lives, both consciously and unconsciously.
Again, easily, I was able to identify where I have occupied the three different roles at various stages in my own life, growth and development. In this respect I found the simplicity of this little book most helpful for my understanding, rather than trying to wade through a huge volume on the subject matter. In my opinion, the little book is very well worth a read, and great value for money. Thank you Catherine Holden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 5 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fantastic book for someone wanting to understand the basics or someone with a short attention span as you don't loose the thread once in complicated psychological explanations! I can see me using this as a basis for both personal therapeutic progress and for use in working with comical drama.

Perfect bite sized portion. I have now downloaded all her bit sized books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alternative thinking 15 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
as a person centred therapist I found this really interesting and an enjoyable perspective. will definitely use for personal reflection. additionally however there are some assumptions in this theory which differ from the basic theory of a person centred approach which I will endeavour to investigate more. Good read.

This is a nice intro into the Drama Triangle, although very basic, full book would need to be bought.

As this was a free intro I would recommend to read it.

It all sounds very easy on paper. Fascinating stuff but may take some practice spotting the key figures! Knowledge is power...

I loved this, I could identify with the rescuer but more so people in my life who are persecutors. Thanks

This is a basic beginner's book about karpman's drama triangle (though it's never referenced as such) and worth a read as an introduction. Read more

This book will allow you a sense of perspective when dealing with others. The idea is simple be an adult not a persecutor, victim or rescuer.
