So the shower cartridge will need to be replaced, the post that the handle attaches too it broke off.

The smaller center chrome piece will unscrew, then the large plate will then come off. With that removed you will find the shower diverter which looks something like this.

The cartridge is the black part, in your case the white. It's attached to the valve with screws, maybe a brass plate. Remove screws and pull it out, then locate replacement part and install.

That is a basic install but they are pretty simple to do, dont forget to turn off the water to the shower!

If you can identify the model of your shower it will help with finding the part!

If you contact the manufacturer they may send you the part for free, though you'll have to wait a week for shipping.
