Sexuality is a vital, defining part of our identity. We are at our most vulnerable when we experience sexual feelings—therefore we're the most prone to feeling shame. In this workshop, we will offer tools you can use to help clients talk about, explore, and heal the sexual shame that can arise at any stage in the life cycle—and help them towards a life-affirming sexuality.

Healing Shame in Couples

A Workshop for Therapists and Other Helping Professionals
With Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP, BCC

Berkeley, CA

$350 ($325 if paid in full by 3/16/18)
13 CEUs - CAMFT Approved CE Provider #134393

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. This can become a highly reactive cycle, preventing both people from getting their basic safety and attachment needs met. And shame can distort how we hear each other; the received message may have little to do with the message the partner is attempting to send.

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

Melting the Shame Freeze: Somatic Techniques to Create Safety and Build Attachment

Marin County Chapter of CAMFT

Do you ever get into have the experience of thinking you’re on track with a client and suddenly they shut down, change the subject or become very upset? As therapists, we are there to support and help the client grow, but sometimes there is a feeling that we are missing something. Often it is simply and most profoundly the emotion of shame. Shame is the embodied belief that "something is wrong with me". Many clients - and therapists - are not aware of how unhealed shame can keep body and emotions frozen.
