Rescuing - Helping that Harms - Navgati

Transactional Analysis offers an understanding of helping that harms through the concept of Rescuing, which is one of the three roles of the Karpman Drama Triangle, the other two roles being Persecuting and Being Victim.

The problem here is that they are meeting their own need to be needed rather than the needs of the person being helped.
