A 2-day Workshop led by Dr Janina Fisher

Shame is one of the most difficult symptoms to work with in the consulting room. It hinders progress and presents many potential pitfalls for the practitioner.

And yet… shame and self-hatred serve as essential survival strategies for those who have experienced developmental trauma or other overwhelming difficulties in life .

The discoveries of modern neuroscience enable us now to reach parts of the psyche-body that the traditional talking cures and cognitive therapies have been unable to reach. New techniques, such as those employed in sensorimotor psychotherapy, are highly effective in facilitating adaptation of these survival strategies. They are easily employed by practitioners of all modalities.

Dr Janina Fisher is in demand throughout the world for her pioneering work in this field. She has a reputation as an excellent teacher and is in considerable demand herself as a therapist and consultant. Her academic and professional pedigree ensure respect from all psychological disciplines. Click here to read more about Dr Fisher.

This workshop should be of immediate benefit in the practices of those who attend. When traditional psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural approaches are integrated with sensorimotor interventions, issues of shame and self-loathing become avenues for transformation, rather than obstacles to progress.
