Once the shadow is outed from its hiding place in our psyches, it loses its power to sabotage our and others’ lives.

In this experiential workshop we will clarify what is meant by shadow and look at how it manifests inside us. We will learn to befriend our own dark places and find techniques to build trust and empathy.

We will then examine how it shows up in our clients and look at some of the methods we can employ as therapists to build trust and in so doing get permission to explore some of the murky places our clients inhabit.

“Jekyll and Hide” is a book being currently written by Malcolm and William Murtha, which has the aim of educating us in the understanding of shadow.
