Looking for a Psychotherapist?

One of my favorite CLG resources is their handout on what is and isn't in our control (scroll down to Commitment #11):

Enneagram

On one level, the Enneagram is a personality typology; on another, it can provide a rich pathway for spiritual growth. 

 

At this website, I recommend taking the RHETI and then signing up for the free daily EnneaThought emails with your top two types:

To go even more in-depth, you can find out your Tritype (your leading type in all three intelligence centers of body, head, and heart, as developed by Katherine Fauvre):

https://enneagramtritypetest.com

You might also enjoy Fauvre's videos, many of which are available on YouTube.

 

The week-long Enneagram Global Summit, an online conference produced by the Shift Network, is typically held in June and features dozens of leading Enneagram teachers and topics.  Information will be posted here once the next conference is organized:

Family Systems Theory

These two links provide overviews of Bowenian Family Systems Theory (FST),

a useful way of understanding the emotional patterns in families, other groups and organizations, first developed by Dr. Murray Bowen.  Often problems that first appear to be located within an individual, can be better understood (and helped) by taking a wider, systemic approach:

Feminist Survival Podcast

Twin sisters Emily and Amelia Nagoski, co-authors of the amazing book Burnout (which is also about "completing the stress cycle" and resisting the "Bikini Industrial Complex"), have a must-listen podcast:

Highly Sensitive Persons

Dr. Elaine Aron's groundbreaking and wonderfully helpful work on those of us with Highly Sensitive Personality:

http://hsperson.com

I recommend reading her books The Highly Sensitive Person and The Highly Sensitive Person in Love.  While not specifically about HSPs, The Undervalued Self is also a useful resource for anyone struggling with low self-worth.

 

Also, there appears to be some overlap between Highly Sensitive Personality (a.k.a. Sensory Processing Sensitivity) and the health conditions described in this article on RCCX Theory:
