In our workshop we will help deconstruct shame from a gestalt perspective, providing:

  • An introduction to a gestalt understanding of shame from a field theoretical and developmental perspective
  • An exploration of the concept of Support for its particular relevance to working with shame
  • A focus on recognising manifestations of shame, shame defences in ourselves and our clients
  • Approaches to work effectively and skilfully with shame as it arises in the therapeutic relationship so that it can become part of the dialogue and not a hidden aspect
  • A ‘Shame Practicum’ giving opportunities to bring forward shame issues as they may be occurring for attendees in the client and supervisory relationships
