The ancient symbol of the Enneagram has become one of today’s most popular systems for self-understanding. The Enneagram is a modern synthesis of ancient and modern psychological and spiritual teachings. This presentation will present the historical context of the development of the Enneagram and give an overview of the nine personality types utilized and their interrelationships. The Enneagram is a powerful tool for personal transformation and development and shows how one can overcome inner barriers, unconscious childhood messages, and cultivate awareness in daily life.
About the Presenter:
Laurel is currently in private practice where she works primarily with individual adults and couples. She is trained in EMDR and has been utilizing this approach with clients since 2008. Most of her adult clients have experienced significant early childhood trauma. Prior to beginning her private practice over ten years ago, Laurel worked in the child welfare system, primarily in the area of adoption for fifteen years. Laurel describes this experience as being crucial in her learning about loss and being with clients in primal emotional settings. Using these and other lessons learned from clients, Laurel later developed a training program for adoptive parents, which is used in a large international adoption agency across the United States. Laurel worked with all members of the adoption triad (birthparents, children, and adoptive parents) in private, public, and international agency settings. As a result, Laurel has a strong attachment orientation which informs her work. Laurel became interested in the Enneagram several years ago and has studied and utilized it’s framework both personally and professionally. Laurel is a Board Member of the Clinical Society and serves the Napa/Sonoma District as
