The counsellors toolbox when working with shame
Portslade (Brighton and Hove)
The counsellors toolbox when working with shame: exercises to break the silence of shame and build shame resilience.
This training day will provide professionals working with shame an opportunity to develop and enhance their existing skills by adding new techniques to their therapeutic repertoire.
As toxic shame is primarily stored in the right brain, practitioners need to be able to facilitate right brain engagement through a range of creative techniques and exercises to expand their toolbox. In adopting a workshop style approach, counsellors and practitioners will have an opportunity to actively engage with a range of tried and tested exercises to use with clients who experience shame.
The aim is to enable practitioners to explore more creative ways of working with shame to help clients break the silence and secrecy of shame and build shame resilience through authentic pride. Through a series of experiential exercises including creating a web of shame, developing a circle of shame, the use of masks to cover up shame, making shame genograms to identify the intergenerational transmission of shame, the embodiment of shame and working with nesting dolls, practitioners will be able to uncover hidden shame and explore the range of shame defences.
