WORKSHOP #1

HEALING SHAME (1-DAY INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP)

DATE

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017
REGISTRATION: 8:00 A.M.-9:00 A.M.
WORKSHOP: 9:00 A.M.-4:30 P.M.

DESCRIPTION

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.

OBJECTIVE

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • default_titleIdentify shame in your clients and differentiate shame from other emotions;
  • default_titleEnhance your sensitivity to shaming often implicit in therapy and provide a therapeutic milieu that is marked by counter shaming;
  • default_titleHelp your client recognize and work through shame; and,
  • default_titleEmploy different cognitive, experiential, somatic and relational intervention strategies to heal both past and present shame experiences.

WORKSHOP #2

MELTING THE SHAME FREEZE: USING SOMATIC TECHNIQUES TO CREATE SAFETY AND BUILD ATTUNEMENT (2-DAY ADVANCED WORKSHOP)

DATE

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 14, 2017
REGISTRATION: 8:00 A.M.-9:00 A.M.
WORKSHOP: 9:00 A.M.-4:30 P.M.

DESCRIPTION

Shame is an embodied belief that “something is wrong with me.” Because shame exists in the body as well as in the mind, it is helpful for therapists to work with shame somatically. Clients stuck in shame have trouble seeing anyone but themselves. It can be hard for them to receive support from another person as they are caught in the grip of shame. In this workshop, we will explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance.

OBJECTIVE

In this workshop, you will learn how to:

  • default_titleUse breathing and grounding to resource the client – becoming more aware of our own breathing and expanding it in the process;
  • default_titleHelp clients repair the disconnect between self and others – and between parts of the self – which have been created by shaming, inappropriate behaviour, or abuse;
  • default_titleKeep your clients more present in the room with you and counter over-verbalization, dissociation and freezing; and,
  • default_titleEmploy techniques and theory from Wilhelm Reich (the father of somatics), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing), Ron Kurtz (Hakomi), and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing).
