Delaware Hospice’s Family Support Center will hold a Lunch Bunch Lecture from noon to 1:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 7, at the Delaware Hospice Center, 100 Patriots Way, Milford. Dr. Judy Pierson, clinical psychologist, will discuss “Shame: The Toxic Belief You are Unworthy, Unlovable or Flawed.”
Generally rooted in early childhood experiences, shame is often contrasted with guilt. Guilt is feeling bad about one’s actions. Shame is feeling bad about one's very being, one's sense of self.
Shame is a toxic, painful emotion that haunts many. It leads to self-limiting life choices, self-destructive behaviors, and excessive self-criticism. In this workshop, Pierson will explore the roots of shame, but more importantly, outline strategies and techniques for overcoming shame.
Registration is required as seating capacity is limited, and the cost of lunch is $5 per person. Register by Wednesday, Feb. 5, by contacting Michele August at 302-856-7717 or 302-478-5707 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
