Positively Healing Shame: Compassion Focused Approach
Friday, September 23, 2016
The Brattleboro Retreat
8:30 AM – 4:00 PM
“Deirdre Fay has been applying her Becoming Safely Embodied model to individual and group trauma treatment for many years, long before mindfulness or somatic techniques became well-accepted in the field. These deceptively simple skills and new ways of relating to themselves and others are easy for clients to absorb, yet enable them to stabilize their emotions and behavior and to tolerate a deeper therapeutic exploration. Deirdre’s warm, experiential style of teaching and jargon-free language also make her neurobiologically-informed ways of working accessible even to therapists for whom these concepts are unfamiliar. This is a very useful workshop that offers many usable tools for therapists to take away and new paradigms for helping their clients see a different future.”
– Janina Fisher, PhD, coauthor with Pat Ogden of

At the end of the conference, participants will be able to:
• Define and identify protest and how it manifests in the body.
• Explain and practice the skill of cultivating “nourishing opposites”.
• Assess and design practices to re-organize shame.
• List at least 3 ways shame derails connection to self and others.
• Demonstrate and apply breathing practices to calm the nervous system.

Former supervisor at The Trauma Center, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute trainer from 2000–2008, and qualified trainer in Mindful Self-Compassion, Ms. Fay has practiced for 30 years and is the originator of the Becoming Safely Embodied skills used throughout the world.
