Understanding Introversion in an Extroverted World: Implications for the Workplace and for Therapeutic Approaches

Research suggests that about one-third of Americans are introverts. Grounded in Jungian psychology, introversion describes individuals, along a continuum, as people who tend to recharge energy through alone time, reflection and solitary activities. In a culture that highly values social interaction, active leadership styles, and verbal commerce, introverts bring unique gifts and can experience significant challenges in both personal and professional relationships.

This workshop will contrast the differences between introversion, shyness and sensitivity. We will discuss strategies to assist introverts in maximizing their style and navigating challenges in relationships.

Class size is limited to 30.
