IIBA – Professional Development Workshop 2018 – SHAME

October 19, 2018 – This Bioenergetic Analysis PDW will address how, as a clinician, we work with shame, how we may get caught in our own shame while working with our clients and how to maintain or repair the connection that shame disrupts.

Rage makes active our inner helplessness and shame. Expressing rage moves energy out, freeing, temporarily, built up tension. Rage feels powerful and protects us from feeling the shame within. However, the cycle of shame and rage will again be put into process if the underlying shame is not acknowledged and addressed. Continue reading
