Description

Transforming Toxic Shame: Helping clients recover pride and self-esteem

A workshop with

Dr Paolo Bertrando

Internationally renowned Systemic Psychotherapist, Teacher and Author, MD, PhD, Director of The Systemic ‐ Dialogical School, Bergamo, Italy


Of all the emotions, Shame and Pride, important as they are in human interaction, are frequently overlooked in therapy.

Shame, the most social among social emotions, is easily observed in individuals, couples and families but is often too painful to talk about and hard to find words for. When feeling ashamed we tend to isolate and close in on ourselves whilst at the same time becoming hyper-attentive and wary of others. Through the process of shaming our sense of self-worth is undermined. In extreme circumstances, this can lead to toxic shame and a sense of sheer self‐annihilation. Recognising this is central to developing a framework for therapists aimed at supporting clients to discover ways of substituting shame with pride, a positive and social emotion that increases our self-worth, self-esteem and self-efficacy.

During this experiential workshop, we will

  • Explore shame and its many manifestations including ways it can become dominant in family and couple interaction, or in the lives of individuals.

  • Develop ways of working aimed at dissolving toxic shame and recovering pride and self-worth.

WHO IS IT FOR: PSYCHOTHERAPISTS, COUNSELLORS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, PSYCHIATRISTS, SOCIAL WORKERS, GPS AND OTHER MENTAL HEALTH PRACTITIONERS
