AST Model® for SEPs 3 Semester Online Intensive Course

I developed the AST Model® as a non-medical/non-psychological approach that can be immediately useful to working professionals. I have brought together the concepts of SE and AST Model® to harness our human UNshaming resiliency and capacity and create more effective client outcomes for SE professionals and the clients they serve. This 3 semester online course responds to the need for skill-building that has been expressed to me by SE professionals all over the world after participating in webinars, live training’s, intros and a mini 5 week course on the intersection of shame and trauma.

How the course works

This course will be a great addition to your life and work while you earn 18 Post Advanced Credits. There will be opportunity for feeding your mind with paradigm shifting concepts that can lead to new personal discoveries and transformation, learning new approaches to help clients through webinars, Q&A’s, demo clips, case studies and live post-module calls. The class will become a community with opportunities to share your insights, encouragements and challenges about integrating SE and AST Model®.

Why the course can profoundly expand my work

I believe this intersection of shame and trauma is linchpin work for shifting core, early patterns that can transform lives, and this course is groundbreaking in what it can make possible for you on an everyday basis. If you are serious about shifting shame cycles and lifting the shroud of limitation for yourself and others, this is course is a must!

Once you have registered for the online course, you will be able to access two pre-recorded audio webinars: AST Model® 14 Paradigm Shifts: Why AST Model® Moves Core Stuckness Forward and AST Model®: Alchemy of Shame Transformation.

“I spent years in various forms of therapy, coaching programs and personal growth workshops. It was super frustrating, and often left me feeling helpless and bad about myself. Since I began working with Caryn, I’ve created new patterns that not only support me in feeling good, hopeful and powerful, but I am able to take actions that would have been too scary before. This stuff really works!” N.O., MI
