Healing Shame: The Heart of the Recovery Process ~ Chemical Dependency Training Consortium Event
PeaceHealth Southwest Mill Plain Campus Health Education Center
Vancouver, WA
Share this event:

Shame lies at the very heart of the disease of addiction.  The goal of this training is to give clinicians, or anyone in a therapeutic relationship with addicts of any kind, the knowledge and tools to both recognize and effectively treat shame.  Participants will be able to understand the various synonyms for shame, which they can use in their practice.  The trainer will present on the work of Brene Brown as well as the program of Alcoholics Anonymous and all its various iterations. Participants will have the opportunity to demonstrate an awareness of how to provide empathy for their clients and how to direct clients to nurture it within their own relationships. The participants will understand the common belief systems and shame patterns in Adult Children of Alcoholics as well as the concept of "Carried Shame". Research presented will include but not be limited to Brene Brown, Mark Williams, Jon Kabat Zinn,  Ernest Kurtz, Janet Woititz and the AA and NA programs respectively. This training is appropriate for all skill levels and combines elements applicable to each of the NAADAC Eight Counselor Skill Groups.

This training will prepare participants to:
Identify common defenses for shame in their clients,
Identify ways that shame has both served and harmed their clients,
Demonstrate an awareness of how empathy serves as the primary tool for resolving shame,
Assist their clients in "mining" for shame within the context of the identified culture of that specific client, and  
Implement tools, researched by members of the academic and therapeutic community, that have been proven to erode and begin healing the client's negative perceptions of self.
