Shame itself is protective and helps us to learn prosocial behaviours – what is acceptable to the tribe or group and what is not. However, if shame occurs regularly and without also a sense of connection and belonging, it can become chronic.
To reshape our system out of shame, we can learn to befriend these sensations. We can learn to become a securely attached friend to our own distressed self. Discover more in our free training.
