Workshop Description: 

This is an introduction to two main concepts of Eric Berne’s Transactional Analysis: Ego States and The Drama Triangle (S. Karpman, 1968). Participants will learn to diagnose their own ego states as well as how to diagnose ego states in their clients, and will develop practice recognizing and intervening on states that do not belong in the present. In addition, they will learn about Stephen Karpman’s Drama Triangle, its three main roles, how to use the triangle as a tool to identify unconscious repetitive patterns that wind up in “lose-lose” situations, and how to help clients step off of the triangle.
