Finding Shame in Our Stories

Date recorded: 25 May 2017 | Speaker: Richard Winter | Event: ELF Christian Counsellors Network
Finding Shame in Our Stories


Shame has been called the “swampland of the soul”. Uncovering and recognising shame in our own stories is often painful and difficult, but it is necessary for healing. Perfectionism, anxiety, depression and other problems are often driven by shame. Shame is often caused by traumatic incidents. We will explore how interacting with secular ideas about shame can help to both confuse or clarify, how shame is resisted and exposed in counselling, and finally how a gospel remedy can be offered and applied.
