LUNCHEON Meeting


Friday, May 10th, 2019

 

TOPIC


The Enneagram 
         for 
     Therapists


Join the Austin AMFT community for a presentation on the Enneagram for Therapists. The Enneagram is a powerful and dynamic personality system that describes nine distinct and fundamentally different patterns of thinking, feeling, and acting. As you discover your personality type and how it colors your view of the world, you’ll also discover what motivates you, your coping strategies, and keys to personal development. Abi will provide an overview of the Enneagram as a system and talk about how you might integrate the powerful tool in your clinical practice. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Give participants a basic understanding of the Enneagram as a system.

Help participants understand basic motivations of each type.

Give participants resources for using the Enneagram in their practice

Discuss clinical best practices for using the Enneagram in a therapeutic setting.



BIOGRAPHY

Abi Robins (they/them) is a trained Enneagram Teacher who studied with Helen Palmer, Marion Gilbert, Peter O’Hanrahan and others through The Narrative Enneagram in Menlo Park, CA. Robins is also a CIAYT Yoga Therapist (intern) with the International Association of Yoga Therapists and studied at Yoga Yoga in Austin, TX.

Abi’s teaching combines the deep and transformative insight of the Enneagram with the holistic and down to earth practices of Yoga Therapy. Robins seeks to share these two powerful systems to help people better understand themselves and those around them and live more fulfilling and meaningful lives.


This presentation is designed to be useful for all levels of training and experience.

PROFESSIONAL WORKSHOPS, TRAININGS, AND CONFERENCES


Clinical Group

Men's Group

Looking for a Few Good Men

   Maybe you’ve been working with the wife and the man needs therapy too.
   Maybe you’ve been seeing the couple but the man isn’t as receptive as the wife.
   Maybe he doesn’t believe in therapy but a group of guys sounds better.

   Mens group improves relationships and supports marital work. Men in group listen better, think more, and
             become more relational. The intimacy of group seeps into other relationships.

   After 30 years of leading groups in Houston, I’m starting a new mens group in Austin. Since I am now semi-          retired without a full practice, I’m looking for one or two additional members. If I can be helpful to you, please        let me know.
