It's a shame
This is a one-day experiential workshop and an opportunity to explore working with shame in counselling and psychotherapy. Shame is a word that evokes strong and powerful emotions in us all and for good reason, as it forms social cohesion. It has both positive and negative connotations. However, negative toxic shame can have a lasting effect on a person’s life and it can take a great deal of courage to talk about a shameful event.
The basis of this workshop is to get people talking about shame in a safe and confidential space. There will be two group exercises and two grounding exercises during the day, as the emphasis throughout the day is about self-care and avoiding over-exposure or re-shaming.
As this is an experiential workshop you will be invited to explore being able to sit with the feeling of shame and how this could benefit your client work.
Who is it for?
Anyone interested in how shame can affect our lives and being able to work with a shame prone client.
CPD certificates (6 hours) will be issued.
