Cultivating Courage and Shame Resilience Within Clients, with Ivana Mitchell – June 4th & 5th, 2018, Barrie, Ontario
Shame - the painful feeling of being inadequate, unworthy, and unlovable - is perhaps the most primitive and complex of all emotions, and commonly experienced by many clients struggling with mental illness, addiction, trauma, aggression, and eating disorders. Shame is at the root of perfectionism, self-loathing, and our inner critic, corroding the very part of us that believes we are capable of change. It is universal and no one is exempt. This two-day workshop is designed for helping professionals and based on the ground-breaking and transformative methodology of Brené Brown - a social work professor, researcher, and New York Times bestselling author. Brené has spent the last fifteen years studying vulnerability, shame, worthiness, and courage. She has created practical and accessible tools to support individuals as they move through shame to cultivate more courage, compassion and connection in their lives.
With a balance of didactic, interactive, and experiential elements, participants will receive in-depth and practical approaches to working with shame, both as individuals who experience shame as well as helping professionals who support others become more courageous and shame resilient.
