Connections – A 10-Week Workshop Series to Cultivate Self-Worth
Based on the work of Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW
If you’ve ever thought that you aren’t enough, then you know the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing you are flawed and therefore unworthy of acceptance and belonging. This is shame, and it’s an epidemic in our world. While we cannot become resistant to shame, we can develop resilience to shame.
Shame-resilience is best conceptualized as a continuum – with shame, fear, blame, and disconnection anchoring one end; and empathy, courage, compassion, and connection anchoring the other end. Our level of shame resilience is determined by our combined ability to recognize:
- shame and our specific triggers,
- our level of critical awareness,
- our willingness to reach out to others, and
- our ability to speak shame.
Those with higher levels of shame resilience recognize shame when they experience it and their shame triggers. Understanding our triggers allows us to better recognize shame and reach out for support. To learn more, join the New Leaf Center for this powerful interactive workshop series that will help you transform the way you respond to the universal experience of shame.
Participants are required to commit to the entire workshop series. Anyone who hasn’t been a client at The New Leaf Center is required to see a workshop facilitator for an individual session before the workshop begins. An individual session is $150 and is not included in the workshop fee.
