This thirteen part Chinuch seminar for Rabbeim and teachers was originally given in Williamsburg.
The series begins with the importance of understanding children's personalities and thereby avoiding problems, and the basic outline of the four personality types.
It then goes into the 12 combinations of dominant and secondary personality types, the relationships between different types of personalities, and then clear explanations of how to apply the system.

The Fragile Factor: How Parents, Teachers, And Rabbis Can Prevent And Reverse OTD Behavior (2
The key to the Off The Derech (OTD) phenomenon is to first learn about and understand the natural personalities of the people involved, which provides a much deeper understanding of who they are and their internal dynamics. Understanding the people involved turns the murky data that has been offered about OTDers into a sensible, clear picture of the challenges and conflicts that are at the heart of the matter, and this in turn sheds light on how to help improve or solve any problematic situation.

See what readers are saying about Rabbi Shimon Gruen and "The Fragile Factor":
"Rabbi Shimon Gruen did a great job on clarifying the most disturbing and puzzling phenomenon that has been affecting the Orthodox Jewish community for quite some time now. What seemed like an unexplainable mystery becomes so simple in the pages of this concise book."

"Rabbi Gruen really did pick up on something new. There are children who are born with a fragile personality and a delicate temperament, and they are most susceptible to being "damaged" somewhere along the way. That is why it is crucial for parents to understand these children properly, and learn how to avoid any such difficulties."
