Course:

Therapeutic Spiral Model (TSM) Psychodrama: Theory & Practice with Trauma. How TSM Works. Foundations and Expansions.
with Dr. Kate Hudgins


Module 8. Overview of the TSM Trauma Triangle

This module focuses on the trauma-based roles of the TSIRA (see Module 4) by learning TSM’s Trauma Triangle—a configuration that clarifies the destructive cycle of Victim, Perpetrator, and Abandoning Authority. In addictions treatment, Karpman’s Drama Triangle is well-known with the interpersonal roles of Victim, Perpetrator and Rescuer. Through years of clinical experience, TSM redefined this triangle to represent the internalized experience of the trauma survivor.


Module 8 of 11 in foundation course on TSM. Students may purchase one separate module or the whole course of 11 modules with a bundle discount. For: psychodramatists, psychologists, mental health professionals working with trauma, therapists, and social workers.

-Demonstrate ways to integrate TSM’s prescriptive roles to enact and transform the trauma-based roles safely and without re-traumatization.

-Explore their personal Trauma triangle pattern.

-Transform the identified pattern and build the role of Appropriate Authority that can stop the repetitious internalized pattern of trauma.

-Direct Stage 2 of 3 (Trauma based roles) drama, both: individual and group.

-Direct TSM Trauma Triangle Drama. Direct sharing at the end.





Using role theory, TSM’s Trauma Triangle incorporates the trauma-based roles of Victim, Perpetrator and Abandoning Authority, which is internalized when there is no rescuer available in the interpersonal world. The TSM role of the Abandoning Authority describes how trauma survivors learn to abandon themselves to dissociation, self-harm, addictions, eating disorders, and lack of self-care.

The Trauma Triangle represents a closed circuit of energy embedded in the personality structure of those who have survived cruelty or trauma, repeating itself as life-long patterns of abuse and neglect. Through personal dramas, this Module provides tools to transform the trauma-based roles, empowering transformation from self-neglect to self-care, and instilling healthy problem-solving into daily life. The transformative role of Appropriate Authority is taught as the antidote to being stuck in the TSM Trauma Triangle.
Assessment and enactment of the TSM Trauma Triangle is taught as a pen and paper tool, in action by walking the triangle, and/or by using sociodrama or individual psychodrama
