ABOUT THE PRESENTERS

Anna Gold earned her Master’s in Social Work in 1988. Anna works with the belief that it is in the depth of human connection that real understanding and healing can occur. Deeply appreciating the theory which connects her passion for inner work and relational work, Anna began studying IMAGO therapy in 2011. Anna also enjoys work as a clinical supervisor for therapists who are committed to the understanding that increased self-awareness, personal growth, and self-reflection are critical components of clinical competency.

Tim Utting earned his Master’s degree in Political Science in 1989. His interest in politics lay in human behavior where he found himself exploring such questions as “What is charisma and attraction?” After receiving his degree from the University of Toronto in 1990, he began his career as both a high school teacher and adjunct professor in education. Tim’s interest in human relationships, attraction and perception are all deeply embedded concepts in the world of relationship therapy. In addition, his love of teaching and his skills in helping others to ‘metabolize’ challenging concepts are at the forefront of his contribution to the workshop experience.

 

NOTE: Part 2 will be offered from 7:30 - 9:00 pm ET on December 7.

Living In Harmony With Yourself: Introverts and Extraverts

January 18, 2022, 7:30 - 8:30 PM

Many of our patients find themselves in situations where they’re uncomfortable and don’t know why. They feel like something’s off or not quite right. Or they sense what the problem is but keep trying to be what others - especially parents, siblings, teachers, friends and eventually bosses and spouses - want or expect them to be. 
 
Instead of honouring their feelings, they do what they feel is necessary to fit in. But always at a cost. One such internal conflict involves personality traits, specifically introversion and extraversion.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES: 
 
You will learn:           
  • Carl Jung’s definitions when he introduced the terms in 1921
  • The biological basis of introversion and extraversion
  • The implications of these tendencies for behaviour, social interaction, work and the effect of caffeine, alcohol and drugs
  • How patients can use this information for themselves and in relationship to one another
