Course curriculum

We continue our series "Exploring Shame" with a look at the way shame triggers and induces both our drives and our dysfunction. Behind the success of a thrusting executive or the downcast expression of a shrinking non-achiever, we can often find the same overwhelming shadow of shame. William Ayot and Juliet Grayson explore what shame can activate – addiction, workaholism violence, perfectionism, or anti-social behavior.

    Our third exploration will focus on the emotional consequences of trauma and abuse. Our relationship to shame can grow out of a single traumatic event, or decades of recurring slights and cruelties. We follow many streams from initiating wounds to internalised self-shaming. Exploring shyness and self-criticism on the one hand, and overt self harm and self-destruction on the other, we shine a light on ways to self-compassion and wholeness. This is a workshop for both therapists AND for members of the general public.
