A personal invitation from Janina Fisher...

Shame tells our clients, "you will never be good enough."

It lurks in memories, childhood traumas, internal critics, daydreams… it permeates the past and makes future success feel unattainable.

This shame, along with secrecy, silence, and the fear of judgment, leaves many of our clients unwilling to explore their core trauma and suffering...

And yet, through four decades of my evidence-based research and clinical experience, we know that releasing shame is highly correlated with relief from depression, PTSD, suicide, addiction, anxiety, eating disorders, and other clinical problems.

This Shame Certification training is the culmination of everything I've learned through more than 40 years as a world-leader in shame-resilience and healing trauma.

You will gain simple, yet brilliant solutions from somatic, EMDR, Parts Work, sensorimotor, psychodynamic, and integrative Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. These adaptive interventions will help your clients resolve their living legacies of shame and shut down critical voices — so they can reconnect with their minds, bodies, emotions, and most genuine self.

Join me in the course today and take your first step toward becoming the Certified Shame-Informed Treatment Professional who can turn debilitating shame into resiliency and growth!

Why get certified in Shame with Janina?

Shame often presents in our clients as tension, discomfort, somatic symptoms, strong emotions, anxiety, depression, PTSD, suicidal ideation, and more. It can be easily overlooked and go unattended to by therapists. But, the truth is that when shame infiltrates the bodies, brains, and nervous systems of our clients — it leaves deeply embedded wounds. Wounds that talk therapy can't always get to. That's why in this unique certification course, Janina has created an integrated framework to target every facet of shame. Using innovative techniques from mindfulness, EMDR, body-based psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral therapies, you'll be able to get to the root of whatever is causing your clients' pain.

Janina's training program goes beyond theoretical knowledge. You'll engage in, experiential exercises, case studies, in-session demonstrations, and interactive discussion forums with peers, allowing you to integrate the concepts and techniques directly into your clinical work. Walk away with practical tools and strategies that you can implement immediately.
