EMU at Lancaster hosts an evening of continuing education on the third Thursday of the month, starting at 6 pm. We welcome nurses, K-12 educators, leadership and management professionals, pastors and lay leaders and students.
The Soul of Shame: Connection, Courage, Creativity:
A workshop exploring trauma, shame, and the healing power of the faith community
We all experience trauma from physical, psychological, social or spiritual events. Trauma, whether severe and less common or minor and more frequent, wounds our souls, injuring not only our minds, but our relationships and communities. These injuries not only cripple our ability to function but also diminish our capacity to be creative.
- This workshop explores the nature of trauma with shame as its primary vector, and the healing power of community.
- We will address primary principles of Interpersonal neurobiology (IPNB), the continuum of integration/disintegration, and the practical applications of IPNB in developing skills that lead to healing and human flourishing.
- The participant will be able to identify and apply practices that support the integration of the mind, development of resilience, and emergence of enhanced creativity. The contribution of faith-based communities in the healing process will be discussed.
