This workshop will offer therapists and counselors a peer group milieu to discuss topics of mutual interest including: (1) common treatment precipitators and defensive patterns different Enneagram character styles bring to therapy, (2) transference/countertransference dynamics – what happens early in the treatment relationship to positively or negatively influence treatment outcome, (3) ideas and strategies participants have used with different styles and examining why they helped or did not help from the perspective of the Enneagram. Depending on how many people join, the structure will be either focus groups, followed by larger group feedback or a consultation circle.
