The Somatics of Shame


93 minutes, 3 parts with Craig Penner, LMFT

The fabric of shame has constriction, humiliation and hiding "built-in". This causes us to avoid it in an unlimited number of creative ways. It is very difficult to connect with the depths of the dynamics that result. Cognitive approaches are limited. The nervous system responds to shame in ways that are not accessible through "verbal language". This webinar explores the nuances of how shame affects us developmentally, somatically, socially, and cognitively. It also presents a somatically-based, process-oriented approach to therapy.
