Escaping the Victim Trap
Do you find you step in and rescue your child or teen? Do you sometimes feel the whole world is on your case? Do you get angry and shouty over small things?

About the event
The Karpman Drama Triangle helps us to understand how easy it can be to step into that 'victim' role ("poor me") when we feel tired and unappreciated, when things go wrong and we feel it's our fault. Do you go to the fridge and poor yourself a glass of wine? Or have a few biscuits, a cigarette, food you know you don't need? We might then get mad and angry and shout at whoever is closest and become the 'persecutor' or do you tackle all your kids problems because you feel it's your job to set things right for them?
The thing is - wherever we are in the Drama Triangle, we are not getting our needs met.
