Depression, violence, anxiety - it emerges in a variety of ways that are profoundly damaging to your clients’ lives and the lives of those around them. Working with clients experiencing unhealthy shame presents you with a formidable therapeutic challenge. How do you effectively manage something that hides in the shadows … that by its very nature is so excruciating that it pushes people toward avoidance? How do you heal something that lurks behind masks of anger and defensiveness? How do you break through to suffering individuals who’ve spent a lifetime viewing themselves as wrong, unlovable, and unworthy of getting better? Stop letting shame derail the therapeutic process and transform how you work with shame-driven clients. Attend this seminar and help your clients end avoidance, face their shame, and rewrite their story of dysfunctional self-worth and condemnation into one of compassionate acceptance. Key Benefits of attending: • Teach clients to manage shame without resorting to destructive measures. • Reduce judgmental thoughts and reactivity with mindfulness. • Cultivate secure self-attachment with somatic approaches. • Discover how shame complicates trauma treatment and how addressing shame can help you expedite recovery. • Build resiliency to shame with interventions based on empathy, forgiveness and compassion. Course Objectives: • Enhance client attunement with clinical strategies that replicate conditions for healthy attachment. • Characterize how shame complicates the treatment of trauma and specify how shame can be worked with in traumatized clients. • Evaluate how shame can be addressed in your treatment plans with self-forgiveness interventions that can help facilitate recovery. • Communicate how anxiety generated by feelings of shame can be managed with breathing techniques that can be taught in-session. • Establish how depressed clients can manage shame generated negative emotions with imagery-based compassion exercises. • Analyze how mindfulness can be incorporated into therapy with shame-prone clients to reduce judgmental thoughts and reactivity.
