Workshop: The 3Ps of Shame - Tackling Perfectionism, Pleasing and Procrastination

By Ruth Friedman

Brussels: 9 June 2021

This will be a live workshop
Please note the coronavirus rules below!

Almost all of us have limiting unconscious beliefs. These were created, when we were very young, to help us through challenging times. Challenges that we were not equipped to deal with at the time. Now as adults these same beliefs often hinder us from living a fuller life. Perhaps you can relate?

In this workshop we will explore some typical core beliefs and learn about the behaviours they can create.

We'll look at things like:

In this workshop we will be looking at the role that shame plays in keeping these beliefs and behaviours in place. You will learn about agency and how it can help you to find new ways of managing these difficult situations. During the workshop you can gain new insights into how the 3 Ps of Shame may be playing out in your own life and what you could do to begin to tackle them. This exploration will also bring you a better understanding of others. You will find more acceptance of your self and others in navigating these patterns.

In this workshop there will be some presentation and discussion. You will be introduced to concepts that come from working with developmental trauma and that are applicable more broadly. There will be time for personal self reflections, as well as conversation in diads and/or small groups. We will draw on NARM (Neuro Affective Relationship Model) as a framework for this workshop.
