  • “Shame corrodes the part of us that desires change.” Brené Brown

    Shame’s ability to block growth and unravel connection has been the main reason I wanted to study shame. I am a professional in the business of change, after all. Shame became my nemesis. Following the advice of Michael Corleone, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer,” I wanted to know shame inside and out – so I could vanquish it.

    While I would not say that I have vanquished shame in the grand scheme of things, I have learned some tools to use when it rears its ugly head. I have experienced the power of these strategies in my own life, and I have watched shame’s ice melt away from some of my clients.

    And so I wanted to offer these tools to others who are in the fight against shame. I have new manuals that may be of interest to you – especially if you are in the role of helping Christian men and women who experience same-sex attractions. Yes, I realize that’s not most of you…

    Nevertheless, these newly released manuals are designed as a guide for leading a therapy group on reducing shame in same-sex attracted Christians. Until I publish a second version of the manual for a more general audience, the exercises in these manuals can be used with clients presenting with any problems involving shame. I have also used many of the tools within individual therapy sessions, though the concepts are better presented as discussions rather than formal exercises in that setting.

    I no longer sell these manuals online, but contact me if you're interested.
