Berkeley, CA

$350 ($325 if paid in full by 4/27/18)

In this new advanced workshop, we will learn to help ourselves and our clients shift the shame, transforming it from toxic freeze to helpful 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.

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)

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.

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.

Shame is an embodied belief that “Something is wrong with me.” Because shame exists in the body as well as in the mind, it is helpful for therapists to work with shame somatically.

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.
