Shame is a common but often misunderstood emotion. It has traditionally been a subject rarely taught in professional training. However, there has been a surge in interest in shame in recent years as professionals are begining to recognise shames importance in mental and emotional wellbeing. Shame containment theory offers a fresh and innovative apporach to shame. The theory offers not only a greater understanding of shame but also a model for working with shame. As clients who feel stuck are often experiencing shame, this training offers different insights into interpersonal and intrapersonal dynamics.
Hi, I’m Lisa Etherson. I’m a qualified psychosexual therapist who has been in private practice for over 10 years. I work with adults, either as individuals or couples, who present with an array of sexual problems.
An experience of uncontained shame several years ago changed my life. I recognised for the first time that what I was expericing in that moment was shame.
This revelation made me seek out help for shame as I now knew that shame had dominated all of my life. However, finding someone to work with shame was a difficult task. I resorted to reading any books I could find on shame and it was this enquiry that led me to embarking on a PhD in shame.
Over the past 9 years, I have dedicated my life to understanding this most complex of emotions. This endeavour has eventually led to the creation of shame containment theory. As part of The Shame Training Co. along side Rob Etherson, we are delighted to share this innovative theory with you.
