A groundbreaking and revolutionary form of therapy that identifies one’s unique individual temperament. Temperament Therapy is primarily concerned with identifying an individual’s basic temperament and its needs; the way in which one goes about meeting these needs; and the effects of not meeting these needs.
When one’s temperament is pinpointed and understood, we can use this knowledge to point clients in a direction that will give them self-knowledge in many areas of life. This can lead towards:
-stronger, more fulfilling marriages, family relationships and friendships
-appropriate decision making strategies
-better career and hobby choices
-healthy ways to counteract stress and pressure
-development of spiritual maturity
The Goal of Temperament Therapy
Is to assist an individual in understanding how to live out of their God-given strengths and to overcome their weakness in healthy ways. The result will be peace, joy and effectiveness which come from emotional/spiritual growth and maturity.
Every person has temperament needs in varying degrees. These needs are met by either drawing from the soul (mind, will, emotions) or from the spirit; the body is under the control of either the soul or the spirit. Both interpersonal and inner conflicts are temperament related and caused by:
- Individuals trying to meet legitimate temperament needs in ungodly ways (e.g., seeking peace through drugs; manipulating others to get recognition)
- Temperament needs being out of balance (e.g., focusing on intellectual pursuits without taking time alone to recharge; taking on jobs that are too people oriented if you are task oriented; rejecting others out of low self-esteem issues when you really have high social needs)
- Reaction to unmet temperament needs (e.g., anxiety from taking too much responsibility for others; anger over unmet affection needs; anxiety from lack of a peaceful environment)
Is based on understanding the inner man and applying that knowledge to bring balance in all three areas of the temperament: Inclusion, Control, and Affection. It is possible to bring these three areas into balance and in turn, lay the foundation to balance the body, soul, and spirit.
The stress that results from these conflicts along with the stresses of daily living in a fallen world produce a multitude of problems and pain.
