Therapists are increasingly using the Enneagram--a dynamic personality system--as a powerful tool for assessing clients' motivation and perceptions. Learn the nine distinct patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting identified by the Enneagram, and how to use them to understand your client's pattern of attention and motivation. Discover why each of the personality types behaves as they do, along with practical applications of the Enneagram in therapy. By the end of the course, you'll know how to use the Enneagram to develop a greater awareness of yourself and your clients.
