Evening Seminar 19 January 2019
Our evening seminars are held once a month on a Saturday evening from 5.00pm until 6.45pm.
Come and take the opportunity go gain some excellent CPD as well as meet and socialise with colleagues. We have a broad range of topics coming up. Our speakers are coming to share their ideas and enthusiasm about counselling, therapy and transactional analysis.
We open the doors open from 5.00pm – the seminar starts at 5.15pm for an hour and a half. When you arrive we will offer you hot and cold drinks and snacks. There is a small charge of £10 per ticket for the seminar.
What is the Seminar About?
How do we understand shame?
Is there a place for shame in our lives, and, if so, what purpose does it serve?
At a time when we might think the leaders of the world don’t feel adequate shame, their actions have prompted thoughts about whether shame ( a feeling we tend to think of as unhelpful) might play a valuable role in our development.
Looking at some of the work of Integrative Transactional Analyst, Richard Erskine, we will be exploring a framework for thinking about the feelings of shame, guilt and humiliation.
