Shame lurks in the shadows of almost every therapy hour.
It can push your clients to hide their innermost feelings, put them into a freeze state where they feel trapped and powerless, or cause them to lash out at you in-session as they mask their shame with anger and blame.
Yet for most of us, working with shame wasn’t part of our university or supervised training. How will you move your clients forward when they’ve spent a lifetime viewing themselves as wrong, unlovable, and unworthy of getting better?
This 2-day Certification Training will give you the skills and tools you need to end the tyrannical hold of shame and empower your clients to develop the acceptance of themselves, others and reality necessary for the effective treatment of shame-prone clients with trauma, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, substance use, and anger issues.
