The Connections Workshop

A 12-session educational shame-resilience workshop.

The Connections workshop draws on evidenced based strategies to help you recognise shame as a universal experience and embrace authentic living as a foundation for shame resilience. Topics include

  • Defining shame
  • Practicing empathy
  • Exploring triggers and vulnerabilities
  • Practicing critical awareness
  • Reaching out to others
  • Creating, embracing, and inspiring change

Connections engages you on a cognitive, behavioural, and interpersonal level. You will learn via group and personal exercises, handouts, and reading assignments from Brene Brown’s best-selling books I thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t): Telling the Truth About Perfectionism, Inadequacy, and Power.
