Richard Bolstad & Annie Currie quote Antony Williams (Williams, A. The Passionate Technique Tavistock/Routledge, London, 1989) on role. I have usually simply said thinking. feeling & action.
In Psychodrama, a role is said to have five components: context, behaviour, belief, feeling, and consequences (Williams, 1989, p 58)
I still like the word thinking here, “the story I tell myself”
Context is needed, it gives the sense of a flow.
Consequences gives a sense of the role in flow. Reminds me of Marshall Rosenberg and deciding if a request was really a request or a demand. it depends on what happens when the request is refused, if threats follow etc then it was not really a request in the first place.
On the basis of that how about:
Components of a Role
