This webinar covers the difference between guilt, shame, and embarrassment, how shame contributes to self-destructive behavior such as bullying, suicide, self-harm, etc., and how to recognize the presence of shame and practice self-compassion.
There persists a cloud of secrecy, stigma, and shame surrounding suicide that often prevents people from obtaining the help they need when they need it most. This webinar offers practical tips and life-skills to help someone who is suicidal. Note: This is not the live webinar, rather a re-recording without attendees.
