Transcending Shame: A Management and Recovery Workshop

Shame is an emotion we all experience from time to time, however, when shame becomes toxic, it can become one of the most disorganizing of all emotional experiences.  Shame can include a variety of thoughts, behaviors, moods and feelings which can interfere with meeting our core needs and disrupt our sense of healthy entitlement and self esteem.  Shame-prone identities can develop and become painfully evident over time (Harper and Hooper, 1990) and emotionally reactive, harsh, and overly self-critical voices can result.   This workshop focuses on the processes of healing and recovery.
