Compass Seminars – SHAME (Brisbane)
A one-day in person workshop addressing shame in a practical way by exploring fundamental themes
Shame is painful, hard-wired, rapid response, primitive emotion. It is often activated by the loss of relationship connection or threat of demotion or exclusion. Being an emotional experience that can be intensely painful, shame has the capacity to negatively impact self worth and how a person relates to others. The experience of toxic, maladaptive shame is so destructive, it is closely associated with most major mental health issues including depression, body image and eating disorders, borderline personality disorder, drug and alcohol abuse, violence , social anxiety disorder, post traumatic stress and suicide. Yet the pain and embarrassment associated with this experience of shame drives it underground where it is suppressed, denied or managed in a way that creates even more distress to self and others.
Presented by: Greg Yee is a family and individual therapist, based in Canberra, with over 30 years experience of working therapeutically with issues relating to shame. He divides his time between his successful private practice, delivering training for professional audiences and supervising individuals and teams. Greg has previously delivered his ‘Family Violence” workshop for Compass Seminars and is returning to deliver this new workshop in response to demand from our customers to explore Shame in a deeper manner. Greg presents with insight, clarity, and compassion, meaning this is a training opportunity not to be missed by anybody working with individuals and families.
