To give learners a more in-depth understanding of Personality Types and Disorders and how to determine them. The personality types covered will include for example, borderline, narcissistic, histrionic, obsessive, avoidant and anti-social.


Delivered by Kevin Fehin, this workshop will explore the developmental dynamics that give rise to each personality and the kinds of unconscious / conscious processes to sustain them. The workshop will focus on just what constitutes a personality problem in the first place and what distinguishes this from more normative self-identities.
