Rising Strong™ Workshop is based on the latest groundbreaking research of Dr. Brené Brown.
Would you like to learn positive, proactive tools and strategies to live a more satisfied and wholehearted life?
Brené Brown's research findings help people find the strength and courage to rise strong in their personal and professional lives.
The Rising Strong ™ Workshop in San Francisco is led by Beth Jaeger-Skigen, LCSW and Michelle Gannon, PhD.
Both Michelle and Beth have helped individuals, couples and groups lead more meaningful lives and create more satisfying relationships for over twenty years.
Beth Jaeger-Skigen, LCSW is a Licensed Therapist, certified Daring Way™ and Rising Strong Faciliator, Workshop Leader and Organizational Consultant in private practice in San Francisco.

Over the Rising Strong ™ Workshop Weekend, Michelle and Beth will guide the group with many positive psycho-educational and experiential exercises, personal exploration, videos from Brené Brown created specifically for Rising Strong™ participants and an opportunity for personal reflections and growth in a safe, supportive, positive and fun environment.
The Rising Strong ™ Workshop for Women is designed to address your personal goals, relationships, professional and creative lives.
Rising Strong™ is based on the simple physics of vulnerability: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall.
When we take risks in our lives, we will inevitably fall and experience disappointments, failures and heartbreak.
This is a program about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending.
Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
By participating in The Rising Strong™ Workshop for Women, you will have the opportunity to explore how to live bravely every day by showing up in the arenas of your life and relationships to become the best, most authentic version of you. The method is designed for work with individuals, couples, work teams and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, corporate and professional settings.
The Rising Strong™ Workshop for Women led by Beth and Michelle will be safe, supportive, positive and fun.
Space is limited. Please register early to guarantee space. We look forward to meeting you!

Testimonials from Rising Strong™ participants:
Rising Strong Workshop exceeded all of my wishes for a transformative and life changing experience. I read Brené Brown's books, saw her TED Talks and was seeking to learn more. The Rising Strong Workshop was exactly what I needed. I now have more tools that I can use daily to for more shame resilience and help me "rumble" with many of my vulnerabilities. Beth is an incredible facilitator and created a space that was incredibly safe and healing. I received personal attention and also built connections with others in the workshop that aided my healing and validated that I am not alone in this struggle. The Rising Strong Workshop took place at the beautiful Inn at the Presidio and this made the workshop that much more special. I highly recommend Rising Strong Workshop!

The Rising Strong Workshop led by Beth Jaeger-Skigen was conveniently located in San Francisco but I felt like I was swept into a retreat center miles away. Beth created a safe environment and it was an amazing supportive community. Beth is an engaging and wise leader. I felt like every exercise applied to various parts in my life and were taught in easily digestible, creative and fun ways. I did walk into the workshop feeling some anxiety but throughout the weekend, I felt a lot of hope for me to find more joy, calm and balance in my life.
When I went back to work on Monday, I felt centered, less anxious and had more energy than I've had in months. After the Rising Strong Workshop, I now feel like I have new tools and strategies to jump- start my life towards whole hearted living. I look forward to incorporating what I learned about Brené Brown's research and the Rising Strong philosophy into my daily practice.
