Your Three Personalities:
What They Are and How to Use Them
In this lively, information-packed webinar, Dr. Maisel presents a simple model of personality that captures our felt experience of what it is to be human.
He describes personality as being made up of three component parts, original personality, formed personality, and available personality. Dr. Maisel explains that we come into the world already somebody, as uniquely ourselves, that over time we stiffen into our formed personality (the personality that we and the people around us experience), but that, even though we have stiffened into that recognizable Mary or John, we have enough available personality remaining with which to transform ourselves into the person we would most like to be.
You will find this simple but robust model personally valuable and eye-opening, and you’ll also learn how to use this model in your work with clients, if you coach clients. In this webinar, you’ll learn how to introduce this model into your work with clients and how having this model “in your pocket” can help you reframe common complaints like anxiety, depression, and addiction in new ways, reducing client reliance on labels and providing clients with new hope.
