What can the Enneagram teach us about psychology? And what can psychology tell us about the Enneagram? Jerry Wagner will trace some connections between the Enneagram and Alfred Adler, Carl Jung, and Karen Horney in the psychoanalytic tradition; Harry Stack Sullivan in the interpersonal tradition; Carl Rogers in the humanist tradition; George Kelly, Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck, and Jeffrey Young in the cognitive tradition. And all along Jerry will show how these theories and techniques can be applied in our daily lives.
“From a psychological phenomenological point of view, human nature shows up in nine fundamental ways. Each of the nine styles represents a way of being in the world with a particular worldview and an accompanying manner of experiencing, perceiving, understanding, evaluating, and responding to the world.” (Nine Lenses on the World, pg 28, 2010.)
