Class 1: 10:00-1:00PM EST
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
Trainer: Eliezer Evan schwadron, LCSE-R is a therapist at Yedei in Chestnut Ridge, NY.
Class 2: 1:45-4:45PM EST
Stephen Porges, the researcher and neuroscientist who developed The Polyvagal Theory, has carefully outlined the science of safety, arguing that safety is absolutely central to therapeutic growth and social connection. Reviewing PVT's basic principles, we will learn how to apply them in order to build safety in the therapy room. But what about our own subtle measurements? How do we each recognize the presence or absence of safety in ourselves and in our clients? Using short, experiential exercises we will examine the way we read our clients and assess the level of safety. We will track the creation and arrival of safety in the present moment.
