I am so excited to get this group started. The past few years I've been creating courses for PESI, a large international professional development company. I also published my book Shame-Informed Therapy: Treatment Strategies to Overcome Core Shame and Reconstruct the Authentic Self with them. The book was released in June of 2020 and that same year I also helped to create a two-day Shame-Informed Therapy Certification course for PESI and Evergreen Certifications. After teaching these two-day trainings, I noticed that there seemed to be further questions and interest. I decided the best way to address this is in a monthly group supervision format.
You don't have to have read the book or attended the trainings to join the group, and there will be no credits or CEUs associated with it. This is simply me offering you an opportunity for continued professional growth related to treating shame in your clinical practice.
Since core shame is non-verbal and sometimes hard to recognize, I feel it is so important for clinicians too come together to talk about the subtle ways it shows up in our work, as well as how it effects treatment outcomes, and what you can do about it. It has completely changed the game for me and definitely helped me better help my clients. I am always looking now through a lens of "Where is the shame here?" That changes everything.
We will discuss topics such as--How I can have bigger empathy? How I can pay attention to body cues? How I can be patient with the process? What are the common defenses against shame? How I can build compassion ad deeper awareness for trauma, which is frequently associated with shame? And much more.
Starting January 21, 2022 and continuing each third Friday of the month thought April 15, 2020 (for now!) we will meet on zoom at 11 AM mountain time.
Bring your questions, comments, cases, concerns, struggles, and ideas but most importantly bring your
"C" shovels-curiosity, compassion, connection, and courage.
