Using the Enneagram in Therapy Sessions-for Beginners or for any clinician who has a passing knowledge of the Enneagram, but would like to learn how to use the Enneagram with clients.
Participants will learn the nine temperament styles discerned by ancient cultures to create a more harmonious community. With Enneagram temperament styles as Nature, therapists can combine childhood Nurture to enhance the lives of their clients. We are not only one style but have various connections across and around the Enneagram Mandala or circle. Younger clients have learned the Enneagram as a personality typing. Used in therapy sessions, clients find their innate abilities and liabilities. The Enneagram is a strong tool adaptable to all therapeutic techniques. Participants can refer to www.lynnsenneagram.com for background.
