Braun developed his own NLP method, including systems theory and ethics , which he called trinergy . Trinergy is a model for conflict resolution, based on and developed from methods and techniques of inter- and intrapersonal communication. Trinergy is based on the drama triangle developed by Stephen Karpman , which in turn is a psychological and social model from transactional analysis. Within this model, the so-called drama dynamic works, which says that the roles of “perpetrator” or “persecutor”, “victim” and “rescuer” are assumed in a constant sequence: perpetrator to victim to savior to perpetrator. The trinergetic model provides for a reversal of direction. Instead of the perpetrator, victim and rescuer, the primary energies appear: “doer”, “mentor” and “muse”. The positions are taken as follows: doer to mentor to muse to doer. This guarantees conflict-free and win-win- oriented communication. This process is responsible for the emergence and escalation of conflicts.

Trinergy is used in individual and group coaching as well as in training and serves to improve interpersonal communication processes, but also intrapersonal processes, since the drama dynamic also takes place in internal dialogue.
