CORE Personality Classes 

Personality is a combination of both nature (temperament) and nurture (environmental factors). Personality does not change across the life span and is constantly in the background influencing why and how we think, feel, and act the way we do. In this series, we take an in-depth look into each of the 4 CORE Temperament types. You will gain a greater understanding of your particular personality type as well as insight into the personalities of the important people in your life. You will learn how each personality type handles stress, anxiety, and depression, how to effectively communicate and resolve conflict with the different types. You will learn how to recognize and capitalize on the unique contributions and strengths that you bring to society. You will also learn how gender and personality influence the sexual intimacy in your relationship. You will learn tools to help you be able to do things that are necessary to be healthy and happy, but which don’t come naturally to you.

DETAILED CLASS DESCRIPTION 


 

Healthy & Happy Relationship Series:

Each class in this series builds on the previous class as you gain understanding and skills to help you build an even healthier and happier relationship.

Week 1: Resource & Stress Management:

Come learn the tools to help you manage the various priorities in your lives. Between marriage, kids, work, self, church, etc., we are always juggling and dealing with stressors. We almost always wish we could do more of the things we feel we should be doing. In this class, you will learn practical skills to help you bring your life into alignment with your priorities.

Week 2: Attachment in Relationships:

Research has shown that the attachment relationships between spouses and between parents and their children are the sources of the most happiness and biggest stresses in our lives. Among other things, when these relationships are going well, we feel safe, have lower rates of depression and anxiety, we experience fewer physical problems, and we feel like we matter to the important people in our lives.

In this class, you will learn what your attachment style is. You will learn what healthy attachment relationships look like, and learn how to make any necessary changes in your relationships in order to develop secure attachment relationships in your family.

Week 3: Cognitive Cycles and Neurology Made Easy:

There is a dynamic relationship between our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Building on the previous week’s class, in this class you will learn how attachment style influences this process. You will also learn what happens in the brain and body as we deal with stress and how to stay in a place emotionally that enables us to cope well with difficult situations. Doing this reduces anxiety, poor decision making, and depression. You will come away with concrete skills to help you regulate your emotions more effectively and to feel less a victim to the things that occur in your life.

Week 4: Conflict Resolution:

In this class, you will learn how to healthfully and effectively address and resolve disagreements, hurt feelings, and other conflicts in a way that keeps you connected and doesn’t leave either person feeling voiceless, run over or invisible.

Week 5: Personality:

Personality does not change across the lifespan and is consistently in the background influencing why and how we think, feel, and act the way we do. In this class, you will learn about the 4 CORE personality types. You will be able to identify your particular personality type and gain a greater understanding of the personalities of those closest to you. Each personality type has qualities that are conducive to being healthy and happy, and aspects that get in the way of health and happiness. You will also learn how to capitalize on your strengths and to effectively understand and manage things that are necessary to be healthy & happy, but which don’t come naturally to you.

Week 6: Sexual Intimacy and Gender Differences:

Mission Preparation Classes: 

Week 1: Resource & Stress Management:

One of the main causes of depression and anxiety for Missionaries comes from not knowing how to manage the physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual stresses faced in mission life. Many of the things that you do to cope before your mission aren’t possible on a mission. In this class, you will learn a framework for concrete and practical skills to help you manage and cope with mission-life stressors well!

Class 2: Cognitive Cycles: 

There is a dynamic relationship between our thoughts, feelings, and actions. Research shows that the brain is changeable and that by learning how to change the way our brains are wired, we can dramatically increase our ability to effectively manage stress and be happy. In this class you will learn how to pilot your brain, enabling you to overcome self-defeating thoughts and beliefs that can cripple a missionary. You will come away with concrete skills to help you regulate your emotions more effectively and to feel less a victim to the things that occur in your life and on your mission.

Class 3: Anxiety and Neurology Made Easy: 

Building on the previous class, this class will help you learn what happens in the brain and body as we deal with stress and how to stay in a place emotionally that will enable you to cope well with difficult situations. Doing this reduces anxiety, poor decision making, depression, and anxiety.

Class 4: Companionships:

One of the biggest challenges of serving a Mission is living and getting along with a companion 24/7. Research has shown that when the important relationships in our lives are going well, we feel safe, have lower rates of depression and anxiety, experience fewer physical problems, and we feel like we matter to the important people in our lives. This can be really difficult while serving a mission.

In this class, you will learn how to manage the relationships on your mission in effective ways. This will help you to get along well with companions, members, your Mission President, and your family in ways that help meet your emotional needs. 

Class 5: Conflict Resolution:

In this class, you will learn how to choose which battles need to be addressed and which ones are better left alone. You will also learn how to healthfully and effectively address and resolve disagreements, hurt feelings, and other conflicts in a way that keeps you connected and doesn’t leave either person feeling voiceless, run over or invisible.

Class 6: Personality: 

Personality does not change across the lifespan and is consistently in the background influencing why and how we think, feel, and act the way we do. Many times, missionaries feel like there is only one way to be an effective or successful missionary. In this class, you will learn about the 4 CORE personality types. You will be able to identify your particular personality type and gain a greater understanding of the personalities of those with whom you will be interacting and working. You will learn how to use your personality to be an effective missionary. You will also learn how to capitalize on your strengths and to effectively understand and manage things that are necessary to be healthy & happy, but which don’t come naturally to you.

CORE Classes: 

Class 1: Overview of the 4 CORE Temperament Types:

As each of the 4 CORETemperament Types are discussed in this class, you will be able to identify whether you are the Feeler (C; Comfort & Connection) the Optimist (O), the Doer (R; Resolution) or the Perfecter (E; Exactness). You will gain an understanding of what motivates each type and why each type is so important to our society.

Class 2: Handling Stress, Anxiety, and Depression:

Each personality type naturally manages stress differently. “This is the way I handle things,” and “you’ve got to respect and allow me to do what I need to,” are common misconceptions that we have. In this class, you will learn what the default coping strategies are for each type and how to bring those defaults into alignment with what is healthy.

Class 3: Communication Styles of Different Types:

Wondering what personality types fit well with each other? This class is an overview of the dynamics between the different personality types and how each type communicates. You will begin to learn the effects these communication styles have on relationships between different personality types.

Class 4: Interactions and Conflict Resolution:

Building on last week’s class, in this class you will learn the importance of communicating in ways that are congruent with someone’s personality. The common pitfalls, misunderstandings, etc. with different personality combinations and how to avoid and repair such pitfalls will be presented.

In this class, you will learn how to healthily and effectively address disagreements, hurt feelings, and other conflicts in a way that keeps you connected instead of creating distance. Learn how to account for each other’s personality types and communication styles in conflict resolution.

Class 5: Parenting Each Type:

In this class, you will learn how to be aware of the personality types of your children. Each personality type, with its specific traits, needs to be parented differently. By parenting with your children’s personalities in mind, you will be better able to connect with and support your children.

Class 6: Gender Differences and Sexual Relationships in the Context of CORE:

In addition to the influences that personality exerts in our lives, there are predictable differences between men and women. In this class, you will learn how both gender and personality influence the sexual connection in a relationship. You will learn how to incorporate the knowledge you have learned throughout these classes to improve the connection and intimacy in your relationship.
