A Workshop for Mental Health Practitioners of Color
by Sheila Rubin
(Co-creator of the Lyon-Rubin Method)
These series of workshops are designed to support mental health practitioners (therapists, community advocates, outreach workers, grassroots community leaders, organizers) with how to recognize shame, work through it and move on. Using a variety of Drama Therapy, Expressive Arts and other somatic and embodied techniques, Sheila will teach us how to become more sensitive to the shaming often experienced by clients seeking support in mental health/wellness spaces to learn how to counter shame in our work and in our communities. We will learn how to help people separate feelings of shame from other emotions and how to take people back to early shaming situations and reverse the outcome, helping move their energy powerfully outward rather than turn it against themselves.
