Fear of Disapproval

The HUM recovery message for the week of September 25, 2016 is focused on fear of disapproval. Many people can relate to looking for approval (accolades, congratulations, pats on the back-those so-called ‘gold stars’) from other people and can see that this stems from a place of insecurity and shame.

Join us in watching this brief informational video about fear of disapproval.
