Guilt and Shame Recovery: The Master Class

Guilt and Shame Recovery: The Master Class
H.A.L.T. and Call for Backup
Coast to Coast with Mike Koch and Jim McLintock
Positive Connections Radio: PCR E-106


Guilt: a feeling that we’ve done—or perceived we’ve done—something wrong.
Shame: a feeling that our whole self is wrong—that we are worthy of contempt from others—that we are inadequate and without value.

Guilt and shame that are allowed to run unchecked can take hold of our self-image and self-esteem. We become sensitive to “perceived” criticisms and feel rejection from others. We spiral into worthlessness, self-contempt, and the inability to give ourselves the grace, mercy, self-kindness, and self-forgiveness that we so easily give to others.

What do we know that’s true about guilt and shame? Only that they are the motivational factors to anger, violence, self-hatred, substance abuse, and unhealthy emotional regulation.

Had enough of allowing guilt and shame to have unhealthy voices within you? Let’s lean in and stop this unnecessary suffering. Time to HALT and Call For Backup!

Join us for an amazing panel discussion with some incredible first responders who share their personal journeys with guilt and shame—and their personal journeys to healing and thriving!

Somebody say “1-2-3 go!”
