    7. HEALING SHAME: The Core Workshop  for Therapists and Other Helping Professionals with Sheila Rubin LMFT, RDT/BCT & Bret Lyon PhD, SEP, BCC

    When: Saturday, October 1, 10am-6pm & Sunday, October 2, 10:30am-5:30pm

    Where: In Berkeley, just off the I-80 Price: $295 full price / $275 with full payment by August 19 (Special price for interns)

    What: This workshop provides essential, basic knowledge of how to work with shame.  We will learn what shame is and how it is created, and how to help our clients recognize shame, work through it and move on. We will become more sensitive to the shaming often implicit in the therapy situation and learn how to counter shame in therapy. We will be able to help clients separate feelings of shame from other emotions. And we'll learn how to take clients back to early shaming situations and reverse the outcome, helping clients move their energy powerfully outward rather than turn it against themselves.
