Does things they do not want to do. The basic premise is that the victim cannot solve her/his own problem and needs the res- cuer’s help. Thus, a cycle is begun or perpetu- ated or added to. The persecutor’s role can be taken on by either the rescuer or the victim, as they deal with the less-than-satisfactory effects of playing those roles. Persecutors can work in either re- taliatory or passive modes, believing the victim doesn’t matter – they might have been rescuers but turn into victims in this scenario. It’s all a bit complicated and there are tomes written on the DT but it’s well worth having a general understanding of it, in order to increase one’s self-awareness and self-management. A more positive behavioural model The Winner’s Triangle (WT) is a far more posi- tive model to work towards (see figure 2). 4 The rescuer’s position is transformed into “caring”, where there is concern for the “vulnerable” person (victim in DT). Caring people: Do not do the thinking (for the vulnerable person). Figure 1: The Drama Triangle Figure 2: The Winner’s Triangle Assertive Persecutor P R V Vulnerable Victim Caring Rescuer

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
