NEW! Join us from 9:00 - 9:15 a.m. for refreshments and facilitated networking. Announcements begin at 9:15. Eve will begin at 9:30.


In the morning session Dr. Delunas will help us:

  • Understand how we react to trauma and how it impacts our brains
  • Recognize the survival strategies that each of the temperaments uses to cope with stressful circumstances. 
This can help us to better understand ourselves and others. 


Those who use type professionally will also benefit by:

  • Findings in neuroscience on the effects of trauma on the brain
  • How the temperaments differ in terms of the ways in which they are impacted by trauma
  • The Survival Strategies utilized by each of the four temperaments to cope with stressful circumstances -- Blackmail (SP), Complain (SJ), Avoidance (NT), and Masquerade (NF).  
This information can be used in working with others to better understand their maladaptive behaviors and identify effective interventions.


Stay for the optional afternoon session in which Eve will help us explore:

  • Ideas for how to help oneself and others to move out of the "survival mode."
  • A guided mediatation process to reprogram one of our limiting core beliefs, such as "I don't deserve..." or "I am not good enough" or "I must be perfect" or "I am responsible for the happiness of others" 

Type professionals will also walk away with:

  • Findings in neuroscience on trauma recovery
  • How to reconfigure the brain's default settings to move out of the "survival mode."
  • Differences in what works for each temperament
  • A guided meditation exercise for changing a limiting core belief

This information can be used in working with others to design and implement effective interventions for assisting those who are exhibiting maladaptive behaviors.

These presentations are designed for those with an Intermediate or Advanced level of Type knowledge.


Copies of Dr. Delunas' books will be available for sale at the meeting at a BAAPT discounted price -- $15 each.
