Reciprocity in the Transformation of Shame into Self-Love Life with Collective Purpose

    • Society & Culture

Today's guest Nancy Gordon shares about her chapter in the upcoming book, "Therapists Are Human Too: The Healing Journey of Reciprocity". In her chapter, Nancy shares the “un-sharable” by coming out of the closet of shame. When the metal of Nancy’s car collided with another, her path was forever changed. In both her personal and professional life journey, that life-defining moment of the car accident began a trail of other life-defining moments, some painful, some profoundly transformational. When Nancy shared her personal journey of living with and healing a traumatic brain injury with a new client, Jean, who also was grappling with the effects of a traumatic brain injury, Nancy experienced one of the most profound life-defining moments as a therapist and as a human being: the reciprocity of healing between healer and client. Through the authenticity of being a human while being a gifted healer, sharing shame transformed loss into love and grief into growth, and led us to a path of unconditional self-love. Join Julie Ann and Nancy as they chat about this topic in today's episode, from the book "Therapists Are Human Too: The Healing Journey of Reciprocity", which will be released on Nov 7th, 2023.
