Shame is an embodied belief that “Something is wrong with me.” Because shame exists in the body as well as in the mind, it is helpful for therapists to work with shame somatically. In this workshop, we will explore how to utilize somatic techniques to connect more quickly with the client and forge a strong therapeutic alliance.
We will:
• Focus on using breathing and grounding to resource the client, becoming more aware of our own breathing and expanding it in the process.
• Learn ways to help clients repair the disconnect between self and others—and between parts of the self—that have been created by shaming, inappropriate behavior or abuse.
• Explore how to keep our clients more present in the room with us and counter over- verbalization, dissociation and freezing.
• Learn techniques and theory from Wilhelm Reich (the father of somatics), Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing), Ron Kurtz (Hakomi) and Eugene Gendlin (Focusing).
