YOUR ROLE AS A HELPING PROFESSIONAL AND ITS CONNECTION TO STAGES OF ADULT DEVELOPMENT
In this workshop we’ll look at the connection between one’s (your) role as a helping professional and your own stage of adult development. We’ll consider the stages of adult development through the lens of the MAP, the Maturity Assessment Profile.
In this workshop we’ll look at the connection between one’s (your) role as a helping professional and your own stage of adult development. We’ll consider the stages of adult development through the lens of the MAP, the Maturity Assessment Profile. Susanne will also answer questions relating to stages of adult development, as time allows.
You will explore your own meaning making via metaphor both pictorial and verbal.
You will get a sense of how ego stage affects one’s understanding of the role as a helping professional.
You will have a chance to ask a few of your questions. Implicit or explicit use of AD theory? To what degree can the MAP, as a verbal Rorschach test, reveal how we make sense of experience?
Susanne R. Cook-Greuter is an independent scholar who is recognized for her ground-breaking work in ego development theory and the function of language in meaning making. 2018 her focus will be on writing a book on these topics. She has a doctorate in human development and psychology from Harvard. Susanne is also a founding member of Ken Wilber’s Integral Institute (2000) and an elder of its community. She sees herself as a benevolent skeptic as she likes to question any certainties espoused in the field of vertical development and consciousness studies. At the same time, she remains fascinated by fundamental questions of knowing and meaning.
She travels world-wide to facilitate learning about human development, works as a consultant and coach for organizations with a developmental mandate. She certifies coaches and scorers in using ego development theory to provide tailored coaching. Since 1980, Susanne has researched, refined, and expanded the use of Sentence Completion tests. To this day, she enjoys assessing “The MAP” herself, as each MAP opens the window into another human being’s inner world.
