This presentation will illustrate two experiences of social work case studies utilizing the Enneagram. The first will describe the positive results in an educational center for youth (ages 18-21), and the second will highlight the success in an aboriginal village among leaders. The presentations will be fully supported by the use of participants’ recorded depositions (video and transcripts).
