This is the first time papers from a Professional Development Workshop (PDW) have been published.
The 2018 PDW was held in Salvador Bahia, Braziland and the theme of the workshop was “Shame”.
We had a larger group of people presenting as part of their journey to become an IIBA faculty member.
What was amazing was that there was very little repetition in the presentations. They looked at shame as it related to attachment, trauma, sexuality, binge-eating, grounding, vulnerability, dignity, children and more; all from the lense of a Bioenergetic therapist.
After hearing the variety, the BoT decided to publish papers from these presentations and share them with our IIBA community in the form of an E-book. A great deal of time and energy goes into these presentations at the PDW. After the workshop the presenters were asked to put their presentations into an article format. This is the result of their work.
