About the Workshop

This experiential workshop will introduce participants to the Trauma Triangle, a simple yet profound way to understand how trauma on the outside impacts survivors on the inside. The Trauma Triangle also empowers trauma survivors with an easy to understand road map to recovery. Adapted from the Karpman Triangle for interpersonal relationships, the Trauma Triangle focuses on the intraspsychic roles and patterns taken on to cope with trauma. It is one of foundational concepts of the Therapeutic Spiral Model, a clinical form of psychodrama developed for the treatment of trauma.
