Healing Rage and the Therapist

Presented by Ruth King, MA on 07-18-2008 at 9 a.m. Pacific to 10:30 a.m. Pacific (1:30 p.m. Eastern)

What happens to you when a client becomes enraged? How aware are you of your internalized rage and its role in your therapeutic practice? In what ways do you perpetuate the oppression of rage?

In this web conference, Ruth speaks to the unique needs of therapists and their relationship to rage. Ruth shares six disguises of rage and why we wear them, the kinship of rage and shame and its roots in childhood trauma, the shadows of rage and its wisdom, and what is required to transform the negative energies of personal rage into positive fuel.
