Advanced 1: Giving Back The Shame - 13 CE Credits


  • 830 Bancroft Way, Suite 102 Berkeley, CA, 94710 United States (map)

This hands-on weekend workshop provides a chance to practice specific techniques for working with shame so that you can be even more precise and effective in helping clients gently feel into and integrate their shame.  

We will look at the moment-to-moment interaction between therapist and client and how to be both caring and forceful, both gentle and relentless, in helping your client to a more positive and accurate view of self and other. You will gain practical experience in attuning more fully to your clients and developing and keeping a safe container so that shame can be explored delicately, without overwhelming yourself or the client.

The workshop now includes an extensive exploration on how to give the shame back, the final step in our process, which can only happen after considerable work.  We will teach a variety of ways in which clients can give shame back and release the deadening energy from the past in a way that is ego-syntonic—not scary, but actually comfortable and satisfying for them.

This workshop is open only to people who have taken at least two workshops with us—or by special dispensation—so we can really get down to business.  If you have taken two or more workshops with us, this is your next step in increasing your competence in working with shame. It is also a final step on the path to certification.

My work with clients has deepened as I am seeing and addressing shame so much more and educating clients about it, often with dramatically positive results. Your Workshop has really helped me recognize, name, and gently explore shame that is binding other primary emotions, attachment needs and fears.
