Sheila Rubin, LMFT, RDT/BCT and Bret Lyon, PhD, SEP, BCC are excited to announce the beginning of their first formal one-year training program, leading to Certification as a Healing Shame Practitioner!

There is a growing need for therapists and other practitioners who understand how to work with shame. This training provides vital skills that are not taught in most graduate schools or even post-graduate programs. Having these skills can help your clients to heal, since it is unhealed or toxic shame that is at the root of many lifelong issues.

The program consists of seven weekend workshops, taken over the course of a year, as well as five private consultations. The program can provide 91 CEUs to MFTs, LCSWs, LPCs and LEDs in California (CAMFT Approved Provider #134393). While it’s recommended that you begin with the Core workshop, the sequence can be started at any time.
