Intensive Training: Shame, Guilt and Self-Criticism Course



There’s no better feeling than providing relief from suffering. From the chronically stressed, to those grappling with trauma, dysfunctional relationships with food, substance use issues or anger -- you love the fulfillment of making a difference.

But shame, guilt, and self-criticism play a critical role in these problems and can dramatically disrupt therapy. You worry that you’ll fail to convince clients who feel unworthy that they deserve a better life. And you’re left frustrated, drained and unsure what will move therapy forward when fears about failure and inadequacy create a state of paralysis in shame-driven and self-critical clients.

This recording will give you the skills and tools you need to end the tyrannical hold of shame, guilt and self-criticism and empower your clients to develop the acceptance of themselves, others and reality necessary for the effective treatment of trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, binge eating, substance use, and anger issues.

Experience the satisfaction of greater therapeutic success when you can help clients release unhealthy shame and cultivate the self-acceptance they need to move toward a brighter future!
