Shame and guilt, two powerful emotions, wear many masks. They shape our self-beliefs, create distortions in self-perception, and can govern our lives unchecked. Unravel their intricate layers, from their neuroscientific underpinnings to their developmental and intergenerational impacts. Recognise how early traumatic or stressful experiences often seed beliefs of “I am bad” from initial sensations of “I feel bad.” By discerning that these emotions often stem from environmental failures rather than personal flaws, we open the door to self-compassion, tapping into our inherent resilience. This seminar is both a theoretical exploration and a practical toolkit. It’s an invitation for therapists in psychotherapy and somatic therapy to heighten their awareness, enhance their client interventions, and deeply introspect.
