Chris Germer, PhD
Psychologist, mindfulness and self-compassion teacher
Trauma and shame are closely intertwined: experiences of shame are often traumatic, and traumatic experiences can lead to shame. Shame is also a predictor of PTSD as well as a host of other psychological disorders. The antidote? Self-compassion. Treating ourselves with kindness and understanding when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate is perhaps the most important gift we can give ourselves. Join Dr. Chris Germer to discover principles and practices for alleviating trauma by compassionately addressing shame.
Dr. Chris Germer is a clinical psychologist and codeveloper (with Kristin Neff, PhD) of the Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) program, which has been taught to over 100,000 people worldwide. He is also the author of a popular book, The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion, and coauthor (with Kristin Neff) of the professional text Teaching the Mindful Self-Compassion Program and The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook. His next book, expected in 2021, is on self-compassion as an antidote to shame. Dr. Germer is an MSC Teacher Trainer, and he leads MSC intensives and workshops around the world.
Bret Lyon, PhD & Sheila Rubin, LMFT
Cofounders of the Center for Healing Shame
Shame is a combination of a powerful emotion and a state of freeze, similar to trauma. It can be incredibly painful and destructive in large doses—but it is designed to protect us. In this session, we will explore what shame is and how it affects our bodies, thoughts, actions, and relationships. Once we understand what shame really is, we can transform our relationship with it into something healthier and actually useful. This homeopathic dose of shame is referred to as “healthy shame.”
Dr. Bret Lyon and Sheila Rubin are the founders of the Center for Healing Shame, an organization dedicated to educating and bringing practical awareness and training in healing shame and trauma. They provide training and certification in the Lyon-Rubin Method for Healing Shame, both online and in person, to practitioners all over the world. They have given talks, presentations, and workshops across the US and Canada. Rubin is a marriage and family therapist, with over 25 years’ experience combining somatic therapy, attachment work, and drama therapy. She has written many articles and book chapters and has taught at California Institute of Integral Studies and JFK University. Lyon holds doctorates in psychology and drama, and he has been a teacher of somatic and emotional mindfulness for over 30 years. He has taught at Tufts University, Pomona College, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Their website is healingshame.com.
