This training day will provide professionals working with shame an opportunity to develop and enhance their existing skills by adding new techniques to their therapeutic repertoire.

As toxic shame is primarily stored in the right brain,  practitioners need to be able to facilitate right brain engagement through a range of creative techniques and exercises to expand their toolbox. In adopting a workshop style approach, counsellors and practitioners will have an opportunity to actively engage with a range of tried and tested exercises to use with clients who experience shame.

The aim is to enable practitioners through a series of experiential exercises including creating a web of shame, developing a Circle of Shame, the use of masks to cover up shame, making shame genograms to identify the intergenerational transmission of shame, the embodiment of shame and working with nesting dolls, practitioners will be able  to uncover hidden shame and explore the range of shame defences.

The focus will be on uncovering not only client’s shame but also practitioner’s shame in order to facilitate working with client’s who are drenched in shame. In emphasising that the best antidote to shame is to talk about it, practitioners will be able to help clients build shame resilience  and restore authentic pride.

This workshop is facilitated by Christiane Sanderson and provides 6 hours of CPD.
