Insight into Shame (19 October 2018)

Led by Heather Churchill

Shame is an important topic, not least because the origins of shame can be traced right back to the back to the Genesis texts: Genesis 2: 25 “Now the man and his wife were both naked, but they felt no shame,” and Genesis 3: 7 “At that moment, their eyes were opened and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness, so they sewed fig leaves together.”

Shame affects a person's mental health and it has also been shown to impact a person’s physical wellbeing, with research showing that shame can have a powerful impact on stress responses.

Whether you struggle with issues of shame or would like to better understand how to support someone else, come and consider the ways shame can impact a person's life and the ways that shame can trigger depression, anxiety and  stress.

Please note: Some of the material presented overlaps with course training on the Waverley Diploma/BA year 2 course.
