Type and Exploring Personal Growth Pathways – Alex MacFarlane

personal growth

November 6 @ 1:30 pm 2:30 pm Australia/Sydney

Research regarding optimal human personal development has identified specific steps regarding this form of growth process experienced in one way or another by all humans. In an opposite vein, the research regarding the human deficiencies and dysfunctions we want to overcome indicates these crippling factors are individualised, not experienced by all, and are dependent on nature (our inborn cognitive preferences) and our nurture. This session will broadly outline dysfunctions typical for each psychological type and the overarching steps involved in optimal growth. It will then set about, by group discussion, to explore our individual lived experiences in this process.

The Magic Diamond: Coaching Type Development – Dario Nardi

Magic Diamond

November 6 @ 9:00 am 10:00 am Australia/Sydney

Online Event

How can we really encourage people to attend to type development? Traditionally, opposites are shown along a spectrum, implying people find a balancing point. But Jung observed a “transcendent” function that is a novel “alchemical” synthesis of opposites, leading to a new result. In this workshop, we use a Magic Diamond shape with four facets, such as Thinking, Feeling, undifferentiated, and synthesis. This shape invites people to fill in the synthesis facet. We will go over examples for the types and look at a typical coaching arc that goes from strengths to the shadow to overcoming one-sidedness through new habits.

It’s time to Thrive! Will you be one of our Conference Presenters in 2020?

The Australian and New Zealand Type communities are coming together for Thrive: AusAPT in Auckland 2020 on 5-8 November and we are inviting you to submit your Session Proposal to be a presenter at the conference.

The Australian Association of Psychological Type (AusAPT) expands the knowledge of psychological type and supports the ethical use of psychological type and type instruments.

Bringing our community and conference presenters together every year is at the heart of what we do, and our conference curation continues to improve year on year. To help us help you, and our conference delegates, we have streamlined our guidelines, submission and selection processes. You can submit your proposal online in 2020.

Some background information to help you:

  • Session proposal submissions are due by midnight 30 April AEDT (extended from 20 March given Coronavirus impacts)
  • All concurrent sessions will be 75 minutes.
  • The majority of the conference sessions will be in a conventional conference function room setting with audio-visual facilities. We also have the option for more informal, conversation-based sessions in a lounge setting.
  • We are planning three concurrent streams – professional and personal development as well as a third stream of mixed informal sessions in the more casual space. We have provided an option for whether you would like your session in a more typical conference presentation format or in a more informal, conversational setting, or if either is fine.
  • Presenters are expected to attend and engage with the AusAPT and New Zealand type community. Presenter conference registration will be affordable, and not a barrier to participation.
  • No payment is provided for presenters, but a special presenter’s conference registration rate is available for presenters whose proposal is successful. (Likely to be NZ/AUD 400, approx USD250 for all presenters inclusive of main conference from Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon including lunches and the conference dinner on Friday.)
