The Empowerment Triangle

The Empowerment Triangle is a highly original and effective escape from the Drama Triangle.”

Stephen Karpman, M.D., originator of the Karpman Drama Triangle

TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic) is a positive alternative to the Drama Triangle, which was first described by Stephen Karpman, MD. The Dreaded Drama Triangle (DDT) is comprised of three roles: Victim (the primary role),  Persecutor (which the Victim blames for their suffering); and the Rescuer  (who steps in to try and take away the Victim’s suffering). People shift in and out of all three roles in this Dreaded Drama Triangle (DDT).

TED* is  *The Empowerment Dynamic – a set of relationships or roles that offer an alternative to the drama triangle and to living life as a Victim. TED* inspires the realization that choice can lead to a positive approach to life’s challenges.

In David Emerald’s simple yet engaging book, The Power of TED*, three characters have a life-changing conversation on a beach. What emerges from this illustrated teaching story is an empowered and resourceful way of thinking, relating, and living that increases our ability to create outcomes and to make choices – whatever our circumstances.

The TED* Empowerment Roles

Reconnecting to our dreams and desires, and taking action toward those  outcomes requires a shift in mindset for most people. When “Shifts Happen” and you move into a CreatorChallenger, or Coach role, greater awareness and options become available to you.
