Untangling from Clients Using the Drama Triangle

The drama triangle is a very useful shorthand to staying out of client’s systems, both internal and external. Some common places where therapists become entangled with client processes: fees and time, having an agenda and counter-transferance, and systems (internal, couples, families and groups). Therapists can use the drama triangle as an indicator system to re-orient to internal ease and flow in the therapist seat.

Learning Objectives

Participants will:

  1. identify the parts of the drama triangle.
  2. gain experience energetically identifying the parts within themselves and the external, client situations that evoke them.
  3. identify strategies to bring themselves back into connection with themselves, modeling health and wellness for their clients.
