Healing Shame Core Workshop: Understanding, Reducing and Transforming Shame - Los Angeles

In this workshop, you will learn how to help your clients recognize shame, work through it and move on. You will be able to help clients separate feelings of shame from other emotions. And you’ll learn how to take clients back to early shaming situations and reverse the outcome — helping clients move their energy powerfully outward rather than turn it against themselves.

This workshop will be taught by Brian D. Mahan, SEP, and assisted by Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP.

Through The Looking Glass: Using Imaginal Resources to Heal Shame - 13 CE Credits

  • Berkeley, CA 94710 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

We have developed our Imaginal Workshop to provide new and powerful tools that have been incredibly under-utilized in most therapy trainings. Working with shame cognitively can only get us so far. When clients get stuck in shame, the most powerful way to help them get unstuck is to activate their imagination. What was stuck in the cognitive realm can be reexamined and shifted. Shaming situations from the past can be revisited and resolved. Utilizing the Imaginal Realm can greatly expand your toolkit and give you powerful and exciting new ways to heal shame.

Our inner teenager lives on! Though we may develop adult bodies and think our teen years are long behind us, somewhere inside that frustrated/scared/ornery/embarrassed/desperate-to-fit-in teen is still alive, deeply influencing our thoughts, words and actions.

Shame and Aging - Online - 13 CE Credits

  • Worldwide - Live and Recorded (map)

We all go through it. No one is immune. And nothing produces more universal shame in our society than aging. And it starts when we have barely begun to enjoy our adulthood. By mid-thirties, we are already beginning to experience the changes. Whereas many societies have deep respect for people as they age and see a vital role for elders, our society still worships youth. In this workshop, we will explore and learn to be more comfortable with our own aging process. And we will explore ways to help clients talk about, explore and heal their own shame around aging.

Healing Shame in Couples - and Other Important Relationships - Online - 13 CE Credits

  • Worldwide - Live and Recorded (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The more we care about each other, the more vulnerable we are to shame. Intentionally or unintentionally, we poke each other in the tender spots. Couples can shame each other multiple times a day, often without realizing what is happening. What’s true for couples is also true for parents and children and for close friends and business partners. The more we care about each other, the higher the stakes, the more opportunity for misattunements and shaming, intentional and unintentional.

In this workshop we will explore the blame/shame game people who care about each other can fall into and how to help them stop shaming each other and work together to create a secure base and heal the wounds of the past.

  • Worldwide - Live and Recorded (map)

Though we may develop adult bodies and think our childhood is long behind us, somewhere inside the child is still alive, deeply influencing our thoughts, words and actions. Many deny the inner child part of themselves—or actively dismiss or criticize it. When we ignore, deny or attack our inner child, the result is shame—momentary or constant. In this workshop, we will teach you how to help your clients reestablish a healthy relationship with their inner child—how to both listen to and talk to that sensitive, creative and essential part of us. We will teach about nourishment and body image, healthy eating and healthy self-care, and understanding what gets in the way.
