Marriage & Family Therapist Kimberly Malloy is set to host a three-day series of intensive workshops in October and November based on the teachings of acclaimed shame researcher, speaker and author Brené Brown.
Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, has spent more than a decade studying vulnerability, courage, authenticity and shame.
Malloy — Chief Inspirational Officer and Certified Daring Way Facilitator at the Center for Relational Health LV in Las Vegas — was inspired after seeing Brown’s first TED Talk.
“I believe shame is a huge obstacle from us being the best person we can, and when we identify where we received the message, how it impacts us and how to fight it, we make the world a kinder and better place,” Malloy said.
She plans to host three days of intensive workshops based on Brown’s best-selling book “Daring Greatly” on October 25-27, and three days of intensive workshops based on Brown’s best-selling book “Rising Strong” on November 15-17.
The “Daring Greatly” and “Rising Strong” books focus respectively on the power of letting ourselves be seen and getting back up and owning our story of struggle after we fall.
The Daring Greatly workshops will teach participants how the courage to be vulnerable transforms the way we live, love, parent and lead.
“We help people let go and learn new tools so they can walk into any arena of their life and be their courageous self,” Malloy said. “The classes focus on understanding the story we tell ourselves and
re-writing that narrative.”
The Rising Strong workshops will show how transformative the ability to reset can be. This series will be for women only, with a special focus on how to “Rise Strong” after a divorce, break-up, closing of a business or forced career change.
Along with “Daring Greatly” and “Rising Strong,” Malloy also offers workshops based on Brown’s book “The Gifts of Imperfection.”
More workshops based on Brown’s work are planned for 2020, including additional three-day Daring Greatly workshops on January 24-26 and May 22-24, and a Gifts of Imperfection one-day workshop on February 21.
Malloy, who is certified by Brown’s team, also hosts eight-week groups and other trainings that can be scheduled upon demand. For more information, visit malloytherapy.com or call 702-449-7593.
