SHAME RESILIENCE GROUPS
Shame shows up in nearly every negative emotion we have. I see it with depression, anxiety, OCD, trauma, couples, and bipolar disorder. Shame is the convincing idea that we are not enough, that we are worthless, and that we have no value. Shame is different from guilt. Guilt still feels terrible, but it propels us towards positive change without attacking our self worth. Guilt is “I did something bad” or “something bad happened.” Shame is “I AM something bad.”
Brene Brown teaches that the antidote to shame is empathy and connection. My shame resilience groups are designed to understand personal shame and learn new strategies and behaviors that combat the shame and create better emotional health.
I use this group as a precursor to my couples groups. This gives each partner more skills and tools to deal with their own personal emotions and better approach the struggles within the relationship.
If you are interested in joining any of the available groups, please email or call us for more information.
