The link between rage and shame - one-day CPD workshop
Master practitioners agree that shame, and attempts to manage shame, lie at the heart of most DSM V diagnoses. Shame and the attempts to hide from it are present in every therapy hour; for clients and therapists alike. Many previous delegates have said that shame was little explored in their training or supervision.
About the workshop:
Shame and rage are inseparable; we can’t have one without the other. They are linked together in both subtle and obvious ways and, as this workshop will reveal, the relationship between the two phenomena is unique for each person. Shame is an issue for all of us; deepening our understanding personally and professionally makes us more effective practitioners.
This workshop is suitable for counsellors and psychotherapists of all modalities and levels of experience. It will enable participants to acquire an understanding about the interrelationship between two emotionally powerful and behaviourally influential forces – rage and shame.
Content will include:
- An exploration and definitions of rage and shame.
- Theoretical models for understanding these phenomena.
- An explanation of how they are linked, and its significance.
- A methodology to support practice.
- An opportunity for skills practice or demonstration or live supervision.
Methods will include didactic input, creative and experiential exercises, small and large group discussion, and an opportunity for skills practice, demonstration or live supervision.
Although by no means essential, participants would find considerable benefit from attending ‘anger, rage and relationship’ two-day training before coming to this workshop.
Previous feedback about the quality of this training, it’s relevance to practice and its usefulness to participants personally has been consistently high.
