National Psychology Week- Type, Stress, Pressure and Change

Format Workshop
Presenters Draga Jevtic and Abigail Scott
Description Recent research shows that 12% of Australians report experiencing levels of stress in the severe range, about 30% experience depressive symptoms, and about 25% experience anxiety. Why is it that some people are able to manage stress, while others are crippled by it? While stress is a necessary by-product of living in a rapidly changing world, it has both beneficial and destructive effects. How can we, as practitioners, understand and cope with this reality?

This session will examine the connection between stress and personality focusing on how to understand, recognise and approach stress, particularly how the unique Tense/Calm scale in the Golden Personality Type Profiler can assist us in understanding this. The Golden instrument is underpinned by Jung's Theory of Type as well as the Five Factor model of personality and identifies both a 4-letter Jungian type and a 5th element for stress.
