Vulnerability is not weakness. And that myth is profoundly dangerous…. Vulnerability is the birthplace of connection and the path to the feeling of worthiness. If it doesn’t feel vulnerable, the sharing is probably not constructive. – Brené Brown
“I’ll Show You Mine if You Show Me Yours: working experientially with couples”
A 3-weekend online training for counselors and therapists to learn how to move couples from conflict to connection. Working with a couple can be challenging unless both partners are prepared to be vulnerable and share their early wounding. In this workshop we will experience creative ways to guide partners to greater understanding and compassion for self so they can share their vulnerabilities with each other. The goal is to externalize their wounded child(ren) so they can get on with the healing process
