Greece is drowning. Tsipras is under fire. Creditors can’t agree on what to do.

There are three unhelpful options being thrown around representing the three roles in the Drama Triangle.

Play the Victim Role, accept the inevitable, roll over and take it. “I don’t know what to do.”

Play the Persecutor Role and cut Greece off. “They made their bed, now they can lay in it.”

Play the Rescuer Role and save them again. “OK, just this one more time, but you owe me big.”

There are also compassionate accountability options. These involve a balance of care and concern, collaborative problem-solving, and clear boundaries for new, more responsible behaviors. What current solutions fit these criteria? What countries are choosing Compassionate Accountability¬ģ with Greece?
