A workshop developed and facilitator by Sheila Rubin (Co-creator of the Lyon-Rubin Method)
This series of workshops is 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 the mental health/wellness space 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.
Sheila Rubin, MA, LMFT, RDT/BCT is a Marriage and Family Therapist, a Registered Drama Therapist and a Somatic Therapist. She has integrated somatic and expressive modalities with Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to work with adults, couples, and children who have shame and trauma. She has trained in EFT with Sue Johnson, in AEDP with Diana Fosha, and in Hakomi with Ron Kurtz. She is adjunct faculty at the JFK University Somatic Psychology Program. She has been a healing professional for over 30 years.
