An emotional triangle is present in virtually every conflict that doesn’t resolve quickly or easily. An emotional triangle can be described as a triangle with three points – A, B, and C. Typically an emotional triangle could involve one person and two issues, two people and one issue, or three people. This workshop assists you in navigating each of these types of triangles and invites you to consider how you operate within each of these triangles and gives you strategies to move into the C position.
