Madeleine Blanquefort d'Anglards
The Skin Ego and its Practical Applications to Graphology
Madeleine Blanquefort d'Anglards is a highly experienced and respected French graphologist. Attendees are asked to bring handwritten envelopes to apply the principals Madeleine will be discussing to handwritings of people they know.
The concept of the Skin Ego enables us to study our strength, our openness and our protections vis-á-vis others and the outer world. Do we have strong boundaries? How do we gather outside data and sensations, with too much fusion or too rigid protection? The skin is a double layered "envelope" in contact with both the inside of the body, that contains our psychic inner images, memories & affects, and with the outside, which is turned towards the world, towards others and their own egos, drives and protections.
Handwriting enables us to examine the relationship between the inner self and the outer world through the applications of the Skin Ego, as a "good" envelope, as a loose "sieve", or as a " rigid wall," for instance. Studying handwritings with this in mind will help us visualize these aspects of receptivity, protection, positive self-image, self-confidence, responses to anxiety, and many other characteristics of personality.
The English translation of Madeleine's very popular French book, Motivations and Compensations, will be available at the Conference for the first time.

Jeanette Farmer is a handwriting remediation specialist, with 28 years experience. She is certified by the American Handwriting Analysis Foundation (AHAF) and is a former editor of the AHAF journal. Jeanette was a founder of the AHAF Rocky Mountain Chapter, and received a Special Achievement Award for handwriting and brain research from AHAF. She was also certified in the Klara Roman Psychogram by Charlie Cole.
Morning: Exploring the Graphic Connection between Handwriting and Brain Dominance
Jeanette will explain her research on handwriting and brain dominance. She used the Roman Graphological Psychogram to identify the thinking and emotional styles in the four quadrants of the brain with the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument as the control. She also correlated the movement characteristics of Pophal's four Bio-types to Herrmann's four quadrants. By developing a similar graphic four point plot to compare her profile to Herrmann's, she found striking similarities. Psycho-motor impulses can not only identify left and right hemisphere characteristics, but also conscious and unconscious factors.
Afternoon: Using Handwriting Movement Patterns and Therapeutic Music to Develop Literacy and Impulse Control in Children
As a result of Jeanette's research on the brain and the relationship between movement and brain dominance patterns, she developed a program to train the brain to pay attention the "write way." She specializes in "retraining the brain" for normal and at-risk children with learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADHD and brain injuries.

Handwriting and Enneagram Types, A Workshop
Claudio Garibaldi holds a degree as a consulting graphologist from the University of Urbino in Italy. For the most part he consults for mid-sized companies regarding screening and assessment of new job applicants. He also has a specialization in family graphology, which he uses in collaboration with lawyers and psychologists as a mediator in divorce, with particular application to the fostering of children. For the last eight years he has researched the connections between Graphology and the Enneagram and their practical applications.
Claudio's workshop introduces Enneagram types and shows how they are reflected in handwriting, according to Moretti's method. The connections between these two tools are numerous, and their combined application gives a fresh and useful perspective about the development of one's potential. Graphologists sometimes find it difficult to see the evolution of handwritings and limit themselves to describing the present situation. The Enneagram, used along with handwriting analysis, gives us a sort of psychological and spiritual map that is very well structured and flexible at the same time. The Enneagram is not another typology applied to graphology, but rather, it seems a natural complement of it.
