Understanding The Victim Drama


"If It's Never Our Fault, We Can't Take Responsibility For It. If We Can't Take Responsibility For It, We'll Always Be Its Victim." - Richard Bach

"Self-Pity Is Easily The Most Destructive Of The Nonpharmaceutical Narcotics; It Is Addictive, Gives Momentary Pleasure And Separates The Victim From Reality." - John W. Gardner

The Victim Drama Triangle

The Following Taken From Http://Www.Paulthecounsellor.Com.Au/Victim-Persecutor-Rescuer/

There Are Some Commonalities In The Roles That Appear In People's Relationship Dynamics. Stephen Karpman, A Transactional Analyst, Recognized A Pattern Of Interaction That He Called The "Drama Triangle". The Drama Triangle Model Is Widely Used In Counseling And Psychotherapy.

§Victim: The Victim Either Takes On Or Accepts The Role Of A Mistreated, Persecuted Person.

§Persecutor: The Persecutor Pressures Or Bullies The Victim.

§Rescuer: The Rescuer Rushes To Defend The Victim, Protecting Them From The Persecutor.

The Drama Triangle Is Usually Represented As A Triangle With Its Point Facing Downward, With The Persecutor And Rescuer At The Top And The Victim At The Bottom. This Shows That The Persecutor And Rescuer Both Assume A Position Of Power Over The Victim.

An Individual May Start At Any Position In The Drama Triangle. As The Drama Triangle Unfolds, Something Surprising Happens; The Players Switch Roles. That May Happen In Several Ways, But Usually The Victim Becomes The Persecutor.

The Victim May Become Tired Of Being Bullied And Lash Out At The Persecutor. The Rescuer's Assistance Seemingly Empowers The Victim To Retaliate Even Though The Victim Is Usually Capable Of Defending Herself Without The Rescuer's Assistance. In This Scenario, The Victim And The Persecutor "Swap" Roles.

Alternatively, The Victim May Begin To Persecute The Rescuer, "I Don't Need Your Help! Stay Out Of It!". The Victim Becomes The Persecutor And Pushes The Rescuer Into The Victim Role. The Persecutor Becomes The Rescuer To Keep The Balance. The Players All Shift Roles But There Is Always A Victim, Persecutor, And Rescuer; All Three Are Needed To Maintain The Drama Triangle.

The Drama Triangle Is A "Game" Rather Than A Genuine, Open Interaction. Each Person In The Drama Triangle Comes Into The Situation With An Ulterior Motive, Whether Or Not They're Aware Of It, And They All Must Be Willing Participants On Some Level For The Triangle To Form And Be Maintained. The Drama Triangle Can Also Form In Groups, With One Or Multiple People Filling Each Of The Roles.

Before We Proceed To How To Make Ourselves Empowered All The Time Let Us Please Understand Further What Is Known As 4 Quadrant Of I Am Ok You Are Ok By Thomas A. Harris

I'm Not OK - You're OK

When I Think I'm Not OK But You Are OK, Then I Am Putting Myself In An Inferior Position With Respect To You.

This Position May Come From Being Belittled As A Child, Perhaps From Dominant Parents Or Maybe Careless Teachers Or Bullying Peers.

People In This Position Have A Particularly Low Self-Esteem And Will Put Others Before Them. They May Thus Has A Strong 'Please Others' Driver.

I'm OK - You're Not OK

People In This Position Feel Themselves Superior In Some Way To Others, Who Are Seen As Inferior And Not OK. As A Result, They May Be Contemptuous And Quick To Anger. Their Talk About Others Will Be Smug And Supercilious, Contrasting Their Own Relative Perfection With The Limitation Of Others.

This Position Is A Trap Into Which Many Managers, Parents And Others In Authority Fall, Assuming That Their Given Position Makes Them Better And, By Implication, Others Are Not OK.

These People May Also Have A Strong 'Be Perfect' Driver, And Their Personal Strivings Makes Others Seem Less Perfect.

I'm Not OK - You're Not OK

This Is A Relatively Rare Position, But Perhaps Occurs Where People Unsuccessfully Try To Project Their Bad Objects Onto Others. As A Result, They Remain Feeling Bad Whilst Also Perceive Others As Bad.

I'm OK - You're OK

When I Consider Myself OK And Also Frame Others As OK, Then There Is No Position For Me Or You To Be Inferior Or Superior.

This Is, In Many Ways, The Ideal Position. Here, The Person Is Comfortable With Other People And With Themselves. They Are Confident, Happy And Get On With Other People Even When There Are Points Of Disagreement.
