Jump in and explore your personality type and temperament during this interactive course.

Jump in and explore your personality type and temperament during this interactive course. Though your preferences may differ from partners, family, friends and co-workers, learning how to appreciate these differences can improve communication skills and enrich your relationships.

This workshop consists of two parts; you will register once for both parts since part 2 will build upon part 1. Both sessions will be led by licensed mental health counselor and registered nurse Alison Issen.

In Session 1, you will have the opportunity to apply the model to your own combination of traits, which can help deepen your understanding of yourself and others.

In Session 2, we will look more closely at how our “Type” influences our reactions to stressors, approach to conflict and communication patterns.

This program is presented by Alison Issen and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
