Morning: The Faces of Criminality as Seen in Handwriting (Patricia Siegel)
The category "Criminals" incorporates a wide variety of personality types. Each criminal has his or her unique writing style and individual dynamic. This workshop will explore the handwritings of known criminals, observing graphic elements that reflect their emotional characteristics and behavior. Participants will work together to determine the writing qualities most significant in selected writings. When applicable, the backgrounds of these criminals will also be discussed in relation to what is expressed in their handwritings.
Afternoon: Mental Disorders as seen in Handwriting (Lois Vaisman)
Diagnosing mental illness has become an activity that many people feel comfortable discussing without the necessary knowledge of such labels. However, utilizing the psychodynamic tool of graphology, and concurrently describing the personality, may serve as an initial step to recognize the underpinnings that might characterize any disorder. In the hands of a mental health practitioner, with the input of a skilled graphological analysis, a broader understanding can be obtained. The aim of this workshop is to help the graphologist put the personality pieces together in order to make a diagnosis which would be consistent with the "bible" of mental health, DSM-IV TR.
Mental illness will be examined through the handwriting of known people, as well as those who are "invisible." The power of graphology will help any level graphologist appreciate the comprehensive potential of the handwriting to animate a personality, with valid and consistent traits, degree of emotional regulation, and overall ability to function.
