CT Community for Addiction Recovery



Session Title: 

The Enneagram for Recovery Coaches

Session Details: 

The Enneagram is based on Jung's 9 basic personality types but expands the field into 27 subtypes. The Enneagram is an incredibly versatile and useful tool for self-care and as a means of gaining insights into the most powerful motivators for growth and for the stagnation of growth. Different personality types offer different challenges and ways "in". The Enneagram helps us to understand some of the drivers of our behaviors and offers insights on how to regulate or modify them.

What are you looking forward to most at #MPRCCT2024?

The passion, the renewed sense of wonder and commitment that interacting with others dedicated to service always brings.
