We developed our personality styles as strategies to protect us from getting hurt and wounded the way we were when we were young. This workshop will attempt to uncover some of those early sensitivities and the feelings that went along with them. We will explore how a part of us wants to get free from our personality shackles while another part wants to hold onto our restrictive styles as protection against a feared greater pain. While our conscious self might be anti-personality (wanting to get rid of our symptoms), our unconscious self can be pro-personality (in favor of our symptoms). Through input, type-alike small group discussion, and large group feedback, we’ll explore why we hold onto our strategies and how we might let them go.
