First webinar: Friday, May 5th (3pm-6pm, CEST)

Unblocking blocked emotions

To heal troubled souls and minds, clients need to experience the emotions that go with their stories. Understandably, clients protect themselves from feeling their dreaded emotions. They fear that if they allow these emotions, they will fall apart, disintegrate, and be unable to cope, so they do all in their power to not feel. However, what they resist, persists, so blocking is not an effective solution. In this webinar, Leslie Greenberg will explore ways to help clients undo their emotional blocks.

Second webinar: Thursday, June 1st (3pm-6pm, CEST)

Working with Shame and Anger

Shame and anger both appear to play a crucial role in therapeutic change. How to work with them in psychotherapy often presents challenges to therapists and clients alike. In this webinar, Leslie Greenberg will discuss each of these emotions, their relationship with each other, and how to work with each of them to produce change. An underlying experience of shame often manifests in overt anger. It is easier for people to feel angry than to feel shame. Anger protects against shame. On the other hand, people often feel ashamed of their anger. Because anger is so often socially unacceptable, people feel ashamed of being seen as losing control. Shame and anger are often sequenced, and they interact. Therefore, anger can be both a consequence of shame, a cause of shame or a cure of shame. Shame at times can also help people transform anger into harmony and conciliation, or into healing apology or submission. In this webinar, Leslie Greenberg will discuss how to transform shame, often with anger, and how to overcome suppression of anger. Arrested anger is a major cause of dysfunction; therefore, access to previously unexpressed anger, not only anger management, is therapeutic.
