Shame is an extraordinary combination of a primary emotion and a state of freeze. It is an embodied belief that "something is wrong with me." Shame, like trauma, puts the body in a freeze state and lowers the ability to think and act clearly. Because shame exists in the body as well as in the mind, it is important that therapists work with shame somatically. 

In this workshop, you will explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance. You will learn how to prevent somatic counter-transference and avoid taking on the client's physical shame patterns.


You will: 

  • Focus on using breathing and grounding to resource the client, becoming more aware of your own breathing and expanding it in the process.
  • Learn how you can resource yourself so that you don't fall into somatic counter-transference and take on the client's physical shame patterns.
  • Explore how to keep your clients more present in the room with you and counter over-verbalization, dissociation, and freezing.
  • Learn techniques and theory from Wilhelm Reich (the father of Somatics), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing®), Stephen Porges (Polyvagal Theory), Ron Kurtz (Hakomi), and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing).


There is no prerequisite for this course. It can be taken by itself or as part of a sequence.
