The Jung Center of Houston presents Taking a Deeper Look at Shame, Self-Esteem, and Their Shadows.
Is there anyone among us who has not suffered from shame and its impact on self-esteem in daily life and relationships? The unconscious origins and dynamics of shame are varied and run deep, but as mental health professionals we face a difficult challenge: what might be necessary to avoid incurring further experiences of shame and loss of self-esteem with those we serve?
We will work interactively to explore and expand our understanding of the dynamic relationship between shame and self-esteem. A Jungian perspective on shame and its impact on self-esteem will be followed by related exercises and the use of film, with the goal of developing a safer, healthier, and more ethical experience for ourselves and those who seek our help.
