Aug 01, 2013 03:18PM
Licensed Therapist Linda Focht, MA, LPC, LMT, will facilitate a Shame Resilience and Authenticity Group for women based on curriculum developed by Brené Brown, Ph.D., a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work who has been featured on Oprah and TED talks. Registration is open for classes scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesdays, from September 18 to November 20, or 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays, from September 19 to November 21.
Shame results in disconnection from self and loss of authenticity. Practicing shame resilience helps break the vicious cycle of shame. This 10-week group examines what shame is and how it comes to be such an insidious aspect of our emotional selves. Through connection, understanding and action, the group will explore how to develop lifelong shame resiliency, leading to authenticity and healthy belonging. Aspects of the group include psychoeducation, experiential learning, discussion and processing.
Focht, of River’s Way Psychotherapy, incorporates 26 years as a holistic health practitioner into her very integrative approach to psychotherapy and counseling.
