Friday came and went way too fast! Last week I attended two different support type groups which were helpful to me. One of the groups is to develop shame resiliency and is using a book by one of my favorite authors, Brene Brown, PhD, LMSW titled I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t)! The course work being used is called; Connections – A 12 Session Psychoeducational Shame-Resilience Curriculum.
Have any of you read this treasure yet? I have been wanting to read it for a while as I have read many of her other books that have been enlightening in my personal growth. One reason I want to read it is because the use of shame in some families is an enormous factor in the breakdown of communication, relationships and our ability to blossom into a confident enough person to go after our own dreams.
I think this will be an excellent topic of discussion on my blog as growth is what I’m about. am looking into whether or not it is kosher for me to discuss what I’m learning and quote various statements.
As a Certified Life Empowerment Coach I am looking forward to taking Brene’s course to become a certified Daring Greatly Facilitator. One of the requirements for this is to read this book being used in the support group and two of her other books, The Gifts of Imperfection and Daring Greatly.
In this group I will be learning what shame is, what it is not, and what shame resilience looks like. I hope you all will join me in the learning process and discuss this issue that is used in so many ways to control and subdue others, to us and by us.
Make today an excellent day and know you are loved ❤
