Advanced 2: ShameShifting - Transforming Toxic Shame Into Healthy Shame
A Workshop for Therapists and other Helping Professionals
In this new advanced workshop, we will learn to help ourselves and our clients shift the shame,
transforming it from toxic freeze to helpful change agent. How do we learn from and modify
our words and behaviors without going into the toxic freeze state of shame? Even when we
have been shamed or abused, how do we take responsibility for the part of what happened
that is ours, even if it is quite small, and learn from it? We will cover the shame produced in
many situations in which we feel we have let someone down or broken some important
This workshop is open only to people who have taken at least two workshops with us—or by special permission—so we can really get down to business. If you have taken two or more workshops with us, this will increase your competence in working with shame. It is also a final step on the path to certification.
We are qualified to provide 13 CEUs for MFTs, LCSWs, LPCs and LEDs for each workshop taken (CAMFT Approved CE Provider #134393).
Many other states will also give CEUs if contacted by the individual therapist or sponsoring organization. We give workshops in many cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. See schedule for details.
