From Shame to Self-Worth
Saturday, November 10, 2018,
Venue: The Aisling Hotel, Parkgate Street, Dublin 8
Shame is perhaps the most powerful of all emotions. It is the root of both “the inner critic” and perfectionism. It binds with other emotions, such as anger, fear, and guilt, so it is often difficult to detect. Revealing shame can itself be shameful. For many clients who don’t get better in therapy, shame – unacknowledged and not worked through is often a primary factor. Given the challenges of shame, psychotherapists and mental health professionals need an orientation and capacity that is informed by a range of approaches that are integrative and psychoeducational including Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Mindfulness, CBT, Compassion-Focused, Attachment-focused, Schema Therapy, and creative approaches.
This workshop will be an experiential as well as a theoretically reflective exploration of shame and how best we can engage with this topic as therapists and counsellors.
