This series is designed for social workers and human service professionals seeking a theoretical knowledge of The Daring Way™. Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, The Daring Way™ focuses on courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. The methodology is designed for work with individuals, couples, families, and groups. The primary focus of The Daring Way™ is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead. Using the frame of Dr. Brown’s bestselling books, The Gifts of ImperfectionDaring Greatly, and Rising Strong, this three-part series will present a thorough overview of the principals and practices of The Daring Way™.

Part 1: Sept. 6, 2019
The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are

This workshop will lay the groundwork for The Daring Way™ with discussion of Dr. Brené Brown’s research driven definitions of hope, courage and compassion. We’ll discuss the concept of Wholehearted Living and the things that get in the way. We’ll take an in-depth look at perfectionism as an addictive, self-destructive cycle that leads to self-blame and blocks authentic living. We’ll explore “The 10 Guideposts for Wholehearted Living” and discuss application and best practices for the Guideposts.

*Note: please read The Gifts of Imperfection in preparation for this workshop.

Part 2: Sept. 27, 2019
Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead 

This workshop will delve into Brené Brown’s metaphor of the arena. Daring Greatly is about the courage to show up and be seen in the arenas of your life. In order to do this, you’ll need to know your core values and separate your ”marble jar friends” and supporters from the critics and detractors in “the cheap seats”. We’ll define shame shields, identify shame triggers, and learn steps to cultivate shame resilience. We’ll debunk the myths of vulnerability and unpack what drives the culture of scarcity. We’ll explore empathy, self-compassion, and “BRAVING”. 

*Note: please read Daring Greatly in preparation for this workshop.

Part 3: Oct. 18, 2019
Rising Strong: The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution

Our series culminates with the three-part Rising Strong process at the heart of The Daring Way™. We’ll learn how to walk in our stories, own our truth, and write new stories. In the process, we’ll get clear about boundaries: what’s okay, not okay, and why. We’ll define the strategies people use to offload hurt and how those strategies actually prevent wholehearted living. We’ll explore how to make the Rising Strong process a daily practice and how to engage the process with family, friends, and colleagues.

*Note: please read Rising Strong in preparation for this workshop.
