A strong therapeutic relationship is a required element for successful therapeutic outcomes. Shame, the intensely painful feeling of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging, can be a significant and often unnamed barrier to establishing these connections. Learn how to develop strong, trusting relationships by recognizing shame in both yourself and your clients. What we often think of as “resistant” or “challenging” clients may, in fact, be the expression of shame.
In this course we explore the impact of therapeutic relationships on outcomes and the effect of shame on our lived experiences.
- To explore the physiological experience of shame and how it connects to physical pain.
- To understand the relationship between vulnerability, scarcity, shame and comparison
- Become aware of the defensive strategies clients (and ourselves) use to protect against shame and vulnerability and the impact this may have on behavioural health outcomes.
- Describe shame- resilience and learn how to walk through shame with courage, compassion and connection
This course is open to all health care professionals – physiotherapists, physiotherapy students, physiotherapy assistants, occupational therapists, chiropractors, naturopathic doctors, massage therapists, registered kinesiologists, medical doctors, nurses and midwives.
