Shame is perhaps the most painful of all emotions. It is at the root of both the inner critic and perfectionism. It binds with other emotions, such as anger and fear, so that is often hard to detect. Also, revealing shame can be in itself shameful. For many clients who don’t get better in therapy, shame — unacknowledged and not worked through — is the primary factor.

In this workshop, you will learn how to help your clients recognize shame, work through it and move on.

You will learn:

  • To become more sensitive to the shaming often implicit in the therapy situation and how to counter shame in therapy.
  • How to help clients separate feelings of shame from other emotions.
  • Strategies to get through shame defenses of over-verbalization, dissociation and freezing.
  • The differences between healthy shame and toxic shame.
  • How to help clients out of the shame morass so they can move their energy powerfully outward rather than turn it against themselves.

There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.

Taught by Sheila Rubin and Bret Lyon
