 “Personality Traits and Birth Order:
Improving Our Practice with the Five Birth Order Personalities”

This will be a one-session lecture, with (hopefully) some discussion time and handouts to take home.

Clifford Isaacson was a pastoral counselor and author. In seeking to better understand the values and motivations of his clients, Isaacson, through careful observation, identified five major personality patterns specifically tied to the respective birth orders of the individuals whom he counseled.  He identified and described personality traits for First Borns, Second Borns, Third Borns, Fourth Borns and Only Children.
In this class, Rev. Nash will describe the main characteristics of the five birth order types, how to identify them, as well as point out implications for effectively helping each type via hypnosis.

  •   The class participant(s) will become familiar with the five Birth Order personality types.
  •   Benefits and possible barriers will be reviewed for each type as it regards utilizing hypnosis.
  •   The class participants will be introduced to a helpful tool for better understanding people and thus be aided in their respective hypnosis practices.
