Advanced 2: ShameShifting: Transforming Toxic Shame Into Healthy Shame - 13 CEUs

  • 830 Bancroft Way Berkeley, CA, 94710 United States (map)

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 rules, including affairs.

The book is a celebration of Renée’s creation of Self-Revelatory Performance—a cross between theater and therapy. The chapter, called “Embodied Life Stories: Transforming Shame Through Self-Revelatory Performance” is the culmination of her experience directing others’ self-revelatory performances as well as her own.

You will develop tools for couples to understand their shame triggers and communicate about taboo sexual topics.
