Event description

Description

Shame continuing education program combine years of experience in theory and putting the methods into practice in actual client contacts. Participants in the courses benefit from the “in the trenches” experience of the teachers—one of whom is an MFT therapist and the other of whom is an educator and coach—in putting theory and research into actual practice

Course goals:

Shame is perhaps the most painful emotion. It is at the root of the inner critic and perfectionism. Shame is the feeling that we are flawed or worthless and unworthy of being loved. This workshop will help parents, foster parents, adoptive parents, teens, as well as therapists, understand this powerful and mysterious emotion and how it shows up in family dynamics

Participants will learn to:

  • Recognize and work with negative self-talk and acting out
  • Create a counter-shaming environment, recognize, and step out of the seemingly endless shame spiral.
  • Find ways beyond the feelings of doubt, not belonging, and perfectionism.
  • Separate shame from other emotions.
  • Use storytelling, drama therapy games, role-play, healing ritual, somatic processes, and more to unpack the shame, work through it and restore the interpersonal bridge between parent and child
