Packtypes course, Evesham

 

I attended the course with very little knowledge of what Packtypes was or how it might be of use in our therapy practice.

As I always try to, I went along with an open mind. The venue in Evesham was pleasant and welcoming and we were greeted by Will Murray, the founder of Packtypes, who presented the course. The emphasis of the day was on friendliness and fun.

The day started with coffee and a chance to chat and get to know the other delegates. Will explained the theory of Packtypes and its potential for the development of self-awareness and awareness and appreciation of differences in others.

We were each given a pack and paired up to play. This was a fascinating exercise and I was pleasantly surprised at how accurately my personality was described.  Because the words used in the game are all positive there is no fear of feeling insulted or embarrassed, it’s just fun.

Lunch was provided and this gave us the chance to compare our experiences. Everyone was of the same opinion that it was enjoyable and worthwhile.

Lunch over, we explored another way of using the game. This consisted of a mat, bowls and marbles. This version is played by a number of people and is aimed at encouraging conversation, openness and better understanding of individual point of view, leading to better teamwork.

Packtypes uses positive language so is not intimidating and is non – judgemental. This approach very much echoes the ethos of our practice and it has been a useful tool, especially in relationship counseling.  Couples in long-standing relationships often feel that their partner does or should think the same way as they do.  This can lead to conflict when important issues arise. Packtypes is a valuable tool in demonstrating that we are individuals with our own influences and opinions and that we don’t always have to agree to be able to resolve our differences, and that respect for each other’s reality and point of view is an essential first step in reaching relationship harmony.

I have used Packtypes with my clients, and have found it to be an important aid in helping people to express their feelings in a way that is light hearted, non – threatening and memorable.

Thank you to Gill Hines for recommending this course to us. Most enjoyable.

 

Packtypes

 

Based on Carl Jung’s ‘Theory of type’

Years of research has shown that being able to identify your own and others’ ‘type’ and being able to respond appropriately is likely to have a greater impact on your future success and quality of life than any other factor, including intelligence  and qualifications.

Packtypes helps you to understand and appreciate your own strengths whilst recognising and valuing differences in others, leading to improvements in

  • Relationships
  • Self-awareness
  • Confidence
  • Effectiveness
  • Team work

Packtypes can enable more fulfilling relationships leading to being generally happier, more focussed, successful and productive.

Packtypes is a fun tool that can lead to amazing conversations, invaluable reflection and thinking time.

Encouraging

  • Acknowledgment
  • Appreciation
  • Acceptance

The more you play Packtypes, the clearer you see things and the better you perform.

Packtypes can be used by anyone:  young people, couples, families, work colleagues etc. Packtypes mini is aimed at children from around 6 years old.
