The "Poor Me" Principle

By Solon Papageorgiou, 10 October, 2022

Do you know the "poor me" principle?

Toxic people use it to manipulate other people.

They pretend to suffer and be disadvantaged to get others to do their wants.

Suppose your clients find themselves in such a situation with such a toxic person. In that case, you should counsel them accordingly because such conditions lead to psychological problems like depression and anxiety.
