Webinar Description

Understanding, Experiencing, and Letting Go of Shame: An Experiential Workshop is a participation, not an observation experience. The goal of the workshop is twofold. One is to share informative material about shame. The second objective is to participate in safe, staged experiences to have the participant experience a feeling of shame and a group to process the feelings and let them go. Part of the power of the workshop is the sense of safety created that everyone is a participant and that there are no observers. "Experiential learning can be represented as a four-stage cycle where learning begins with experiences that allow participants to observe, review and reflect on what they have practiced, and then critically reflect on linking their experiences to theory or previous experiences consciously." Dr. Emma Bartle
