The Enneagram Professional Training Program (EPTP) was created by Helen Palmer and David Daniels, MD, in 1988 to train and certify Enneagram Teachers in the Narrative Tradition. During the past 25 years, more than 3,000 participants have attended the EPTP in 17 countries worldwide, and more than 1000 have become Certified Narrative Enneagram Teachers. Beginning in 2014, we expanded the EPTP to include a certification track for Narrative Enneagram Practitioners.
We also remain committed to those who desire to teach the Enneagram, with an enriched certification track for Narrative Enneagram Teachers. This updated program is designed for those who want to learn to teach the Narrative Enneagram. This enriched training includes practice and in-depth attention to conducting panels in the Narrative Tradition, and a section that supports participants with developing and improving their teaching skills.
The track begins with the Typing Process and continues with the Teacher Training course followed by an Internship and Certification (see below). You may begin this track without a commitment to complete all segments.
This experiential training teaches you how to assist others in determining their Enneagram type. The Typing Process previously included instruction on panel inquiry, but will now focus solely on the many aspects of the typing interview process.
Step-by-step you will learn how to conduct typing interviews to assist newcomers to the Enneagram in determining their type. Modules on differentiating one type from another, non-verbal aspects of type, and knowledge of your own biases in conducting interviews are also included. The training culminates in a rare hands-on opportunity to practice your skills by interviewing volunteers from the community, with feedback from instructors.
