Healing Shame - Helping Therapists Understand, Defuse and Transform Clients’ Shame
with Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon, PhD
Sponsored by Talk Therapy - the Calgary Community for Emotionally Focused Therapy
Monday and Tuesday, May 29 & 30
In this workshop, we will be teaching about shame as both a primary emotion and a freeze state, which has a profound effect on personal development and relationship success, and which has been terribly neglected in most psychotherapy. We will discuss how shame cannot be worked with in the same way as the other primary emotions and how special care needs to be taken to work with shame in specific ways.
