Resource Center Dallas and the SMU Simmons School of Education and Human Development will host two workshops with New York Times-bestselling author and world-renown educator John Bradshaw. Proceeds from both events will benefit the programs and services of the center.

The first workshop, scheduled for Feb. 10, is titled “Reclaiming Your Inner Child,” and the second workshop, set for March 2, is on “Healing the Shame that Binds Us.” Both run from 9 a.m. to noon, and will be conducted at the Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Road.

Bradshaw is the pioneer of the concept of the “inner child” and brought the term “dysfunctional family” into mainstream language.

Workshops are $65 each individually or $100 for both; students pay $25 per workshop. Continuing education units are available for mental health professionals.
