I completed the National Shame-Resilience Training in San Antonio, TX a few weeks ago with Dr. Brene' Brown and her Connections team. It was absolutely inspiring. I decided to move on with the training and reserved my spot at the March intensive. I also decided that I would make this a personal journey and not teach, counsel or lead any groups, workshops or classes based on this material until after the March intensive. Well, not surprisingly to those that know me, I changed my mind. I am currently teaching a Child and Adolescent Counseling graduate course and decided the shame-resilience info is too important not to share it. I'm like this though. I can't know something truly helpful and not share it. So, I created a PowerPoint lecture with a few experiential activities and gave my first full on shame lecture last Sunday. It was great. Exhausting - as teaching shame talk can be qualitatively different than teaching anything else I have ever taught - but certainly worth it.
I look forward to sharing more about shame-resilience with parent groups and workshops in the Spring. If you are interested in attending a group or workshop with other parents, please email me at email@example.com. For more information on shame visit www.brenebrown.com
