A new book has just been published called "International Manual of Graphology" which should be of great interest to all serious graphologists. This has been produced by Lorraine Herbert, Bernadette Keefe, Monique Riley and Monique Stirling, all eminent graphologists, after many years of research and much hard work. The aim of the book is to consolidate the various graphological systems which are used around the World, Movement Form Space and Stroke being the main criteria, or "core" system. The book assumes a knowledge of psychology and some typologies. It is entitled International Manual of Graphology and may be purchased at firstname.lastname@example.org. Here is Chapter V4 on Direction from the "International Manual of Graphology".
Tree Drawings: Insights into Personality, by Usha Mullen seeks to reveal the projection of a person's inner-self through the analysis of his or her drawings. Given its universality, the tree is a suitable medium for non-verbal expression of the individual, since it is unaffected by a person's culture, race, social standing, age, or level of education. With the help of some 270 illustrations, this book introduces the reader to the many tell-tale signs that a tree drawing reveals about the person. It explains the significance of the type of tree chosen, its position on the page, the symbolism of the roots, branches and crown and the use of colour; it also helps in the identification of traumas suffered. There is a section on more extreme personalities such as the narcissist, anorexic, schizophrenic, as well as the pathological. Included is a chapter on the Trinal Approach, devised by the author, that allows for a deeper level of understanding of the personality by using three diverse methodologies: Graphology, the analysis of drawings and the Enneagram. email@example.com
