Description

Overview

This course presents a more comprehensive view of the Enneagram for psychologists and other mental health professions, such as individual and family counselors, social workers, and nurses. The nine personality styles described by the Enneagram system are consistent with the diagnostic categories in the DSM-V and can be utilized in the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of outpatient populations. Participants will learn to recognize the nine personality styles without having to learn a new typology or change their preferred treatment approach.

The course includes 12 structured online units. Each of the units contains an audio and video presentation and panel interview with a type exemplar, study guide, psychological instruction and Enneagram type specific-based commentary by Helen Palmer, MA, and Marlene Cresci-Cohen, PhD., along with supporting text and final exam. 

Objectives:

  1. Describe the history and psychological significance of the Enneagram
  2. Describe the nine Enneagram personality types
  3. Compare the nine personality types to categories in the DSM-V.
  4. Utilize the Enneagram system to assess clinical issues.
  5. Identify the nine personality types specific to habitual focus of   attention, coping strategies, and behavioral markers.
  6. Describe specific type-based methods to introduce the Enneagram in adult and couples counseling.
  7. Explain the importance and key role of "attention" in type defenses
  8. Plan ways to assist clients in developing type-based self-observation and attention practices that they can do on their own.
  9. Analyze their own type bias.
  10. Apply the Enneagram system to understand their personal therapeutic style.
  11. Explain the spiritual significance of the Enneagram.
