The way in which you perceive yourself and the world around you are shaped through the intersectionality of your cultural lens – gender, sexuality, family, race, and ethnicity…
In family culture and environmental cultures, it’s often difficult for us to explore our authentic self…permission for individuation to happen. This can create unhealthy shame shields to protect against vulnerability and emotional safety, leaving healthy attachment at risk.
Carmen will teach us the impact of the intersectionality of historical narratives, shame, vulnerability, culture, and the effects of these on developing secure attachment. Moving clients out of shame-based models of engaging and helping them embrace vulnerability and leaning into relationships.
