011 – Gracefully Overcoming Shame with Dr. Richard Shaw


Originally from “Small Town” Nebraska, in honor of National Suicide Prevention Month, I invite Dr. Richard Shaw to discuss the challenges of overcoming Shame and helping people to speak their truth through Grace to be able to make significant changes in their most meaningful relationships. Dr. Richard Shaw discusses his new book, Shame No More – A Framework For Healing With A Message of Grace.

Dr. Richard Shaw is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington State and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Oregon. He has provided Professional Counseling Services for more than 25 years. In addition, he is an ordained minister in the Foursquare Church and an Associate Professor of over 25 years in the Graduate School of Counseling at George Fox University. He has been married for over 30 years and has two adult children. 

As shocking as this may sound, it is estimated that physicians end their lives 1.8x more than the general population. It is close to our missions and dear to our hearts that we discuss the definition of Shame and how we might ask for help in order to care for others. You will not want to miss this episode, as I explore with Dr. Richard Shaw, the ONE thing that we can do as physicians to overcome Shame in order to Practice Impossible.
