OBJECTIVES

1) Greater understanding of the origin of personality theory and disorders per the DSM.
2) A review of the current personality disorders/diagnostics in the DSM 5 and their evidence base.
3) Current thinking on what interventions work and don't work with personality disirders and the strengths/weaknesses of this traditional model.
4) A review of the strengths-based root of social work and how and why the Enneagram personality spectrum ideology may be another helpful clinical tool.
5) A review of the 9 types of Enneagram personality theory and how this may play out in client work as well as a clinicians own understanding of self to bring greater insight re: triggers and (probable) transference.

DESCRIPTION

For most clinicians who were clinically trained in the past 20 years, the DSM has been the definitive guide for diagnosing pathology in our clients.

Up until this point few of us noticed the evidence-base behind our "mental health bible" nor considered alternative ways to look at human behavior, trauma, and treatment. When the DSM 5 entered popular culture in 2013 a push-back began -- specifically with personality disorders -- which was one area with much controversy. So much so that they were included in the back of the manual, with serious concern if they would be included in future versions. This class will take a diagnostic look at how personality disorder categories and descriptions came to be in the original 1950s DSM up until today and the research (or lack therof) around diagnostic criteria and treatment.

This course will review a different model to view personality and how this impacts healthy vs maladaptive behaviors, that of the Enneagram tradition.The Enneagram refers to the nine different types or styles of personality, with each representing a worldview that resonates with the way people think, feel and act in relation to the world, others and themselves. Similar to the Meyers Briggs but quite different in many ways, it delves deeper into the core motivations, defense mechanisms and fears that often lie in the subconscious of our personality. This tool will be "tried on" as an alternative (and strengths-based) model of personality that many may find more empowering and clinically relevant.
