      Daring Greatly™ for Mental Health Professionals

      A Three-Day Intensive Workshop Friday-Sunday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm with an hour lunch (on your own) You've probably seen Brené Brown's TED Talks, her current special on Netflix (The Call to Courage), or read some of her books. As mental health professionals, we want to offer this research and resilient lifestyle to our clients but to do this work, we have to be practicing the work in our own lives. This three-day intensive will give you the tools to lean into vulnerability, cultivate your own shame resilience practices, and the skills to recognize when shame is active in clients or even creeping into sessions. Daring Greatly™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown.  The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. We will explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.   FAQs Who may attend this workshop? This workshop is intended for individuals who work in the field of mental health and/or substance abuse including LCSWs, LPCs, LMFTs, Psychologists, Psychiatric Nurses, and Psychiatrists.
