Working with Shame from an Embodied Relational Perspective Part 2 by Robert Downes (1)
Time & Location
About The Event
Following a really successful and informative day with Robert Downes in April, we are delighted that Robert is joining us for a second day with the focus on working more experientially. This day will also be open to anyone interested who did not attend the first workshop - you will receive notes and references from the first workshop upon booking. Please read below for more information on the workshop.
'Shame can be such an inhibitor to learning, being in the world, relating and the therapeutic project itself. Our clients often feel shamed by us, we shame our clients, we feel shamed and are shamed by them. So what do we do with the shame matrix when it arises? How do we navigate our way through it to gather the riches that are revealed when we meet shame more optimally?'
Some topics and themes we will continue to explore through a more experiential process:
Exploring definitions, descriptions and experiences of shame.
Some of the clever stuff we need - useful theory.
The purpose of shame – as a manifestation of the self care system.
Building shame resilience – how we go about this.
What lies beyond shame and how might we get there?
Therapeutic skills for working with shame.
Shame in relation to identity, discrimination and oppression.
On being human.
