Guilt, Shame, and Recovery Group

Utilizing the “Connections” Curriculum which has been revised and expanded by MSW, Brene Brown, to help clients recognize and understand shame and shame resilience. This group is designed to address underlying guilt and shame and to assist clients in exploring how the deep rooted shame have impacted them across behavioral, cognitive, and emotional functions. The group learns about healing from shame which requires a safe environment to begin to be vulnerable, express oneself, and receive acceptance and empathy. This leads to participants to be able able to internalize a new [more positive] experience and begin to revise beliefs about oneself. It may require revisiting shame-inducing events or past messages and re-evaluating them from a new perspective.
