This is a rare opportunity for counselors and non-counselors alike, to learn more about MBTI® STEP III from an expert trainer/counselor/author. Learn what it can do for you, and when it might be the right step for your client.
What makes it STEP III different?
The new Step III actually measures a client’s type development in four areas of life and work addressing specific behaviors and attitudes. The unfinished work of Isabel Myers archived at the University of Florida was accessed, and resources were provided for the seven-year effort to bring her work to light. The effort incorporated new research, validation, and items to produce an individualized report, released last year as Step III of the MBTI, a version that does not require clients to understand or know their type.
This program (using lecture, brief exercises and time for discussion) will explore Myers’ concepts of type development as they relate to helping clients live and work more effectively and introduce the Step III.
Goals for this program:
- Deepen participants understanding of type development in Jung/Myers’ view of healthy personality
- Explore the impact of work and life decisions on effective and ineffective type development
- Introduce the MBTI Step III and examples of its use.

NEW MEETING LOCATION – Directions to American Underground meeting room
Watch for posted APT ribbons marking the path to the meeting room. On foot, exit the South Parking Garage in the NE corner via the steps or the elevator, Level C. The meeting is in the Strickland Building on the other side of the water feature (take the brick stairway or follow the ramp in front of Tyler’s Tap Room to the bridge over the water feature). We have been asked to use the farthest entrance, adjacent to the giant water tower and next to the Cuban Revolution restaurant. Once you enter the Strickland Building, on the left there is a staircase to the lower level marked American Underground, take the stairway or the elevator straight ahead. There is a security desk in the lobby if you require assistance. On the lower level pass the glass conference room and continue past the computer offices to the middle of the hallway. On the left you will see a break room and on the right will be Classroom 1, our destination. The area is heavily patrolled and quite safe, particularly on game nights. Accessibility without stairs: elevators and ramps are readily available from the parking garage to the meeting room.
