    Great resources. Thank you Patricia. I work with clients and also teach nurses about trauma-informed care, burnout and leadership and management. All very applicable, great visuals, good, succinct content.

      My apology in my delay Jill. Thank you for leaving your acknowledging comment. I work at making my content easy to understand and to put into action. Also, I appreciate that you asked permission to use my STOP the Drama poster based on Karpman’s Drama Triangle. It is heartening for me to know that my work is helpful to others. Your work in trauma-informed care, burnout and leadership and management with nurses, is important. Our world needs more people with the capacity to heal. Blessings to you and your work!

      You are most welcome, Wanda. I discovered a gift of being able to simplify concepts for my clients and the general public. I so appreciate it when someone lets me know the effort is worthwhile and has made a difference. If you can pass on my work to others, that would be wonderful. Thank you for helping others along the way!

      Thank you, Tara. As you know awareness is 50% of movement to solving problems or changing an unhelpful habit. I hope you are aware that you can print off the STOP the Drama poster. I had a printer make me 100 copies on glossy stock. It is a wonderful and tangible to tool to give clients. Sometimes clients print it off themselves after reading How to Stop Your Relationship Drama, Part 1 and Part 2. The poster is particularly helpful posted where people have telephone conversations.

    Thank you Patricia. Very helpful information and I can appeciate how easy it is to flip around from one role to another. Being aware of the different roles and how each role affects us can help to improve relationships.

      Hi Cheryl,
      Glad you found the information helpful. You can print off the poster which helps you move from the Drama Triangle to the Empowerment Triangle. Some people keep it by the phone for those tricky conversations with challenging people.

      Thank you Lynda and thank you for your love of children. Please let me know how you use the Drama and Empowerment Triangle in your relationships. I am interested. The time of “playing victim” is over. The time to support one another in demonstrating our resilience is here!
