Sheila Rubin and Bret Lyon are the founders of the Center for Healing Shame.
FOR WELL OVER A DECADE THEY HAVE BEEN LEADERS IN THE EFFORT TO EDUCATE AND BRING PRACTICAL AWARENESS AND SHAME TRAINING TO AS MANY PRACTITIONERS AROUND THE WORLD AS POSSIBLE.
The lack of expertise and understanding in working with shame has caused great hardship and pain to many individuals. Shame, like trauma, puts the body in a freeze state and lowers the ability to think and act clearly. Shame feels like a fog or cover, something that is external, that makes it hard to function. Usually, it is not a single shock to the system, like an accident or a hospitalization, but a series of more subtle shocks, a slow drip, drip, drip that disrupts normal functioning and creates feelings of isolation and powerlessness.
The Center for Healing Shame is based in Berkeley, California. Workshops are offered several times a year, as well as a full training and certification program for therapists. The education is designed to help therapists show clients how to recognize shame, work through it and move on by:
- Becoming more sensitive to the shaming often implicit in the therapy situation and learning how to counter shame in therapy.
- Helping clients separate feelings of shame from other emotions.
- Learning how to take clients back to early shaming situations and reverse the outcome.
- Supporting clients to move their energy powerfully outward rather than turn it against themselves.
Sheila and Bret have been at the forefront of guiding mental health professionals to recognize and move through shame with their clients.
The Center for Healing Shame is approved by the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists to sponsor continuing education for MFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs and LEPs in California - CAMFT Approved CE provider #134393. PhDs in California and PhDs and licensed therapists outside of California may be able to receive CE credits through the co-sponsorship of R. Cassidy Seminars.
