Shame: Clinical Implications for Treatment

June 9, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm MST

$10.00 – $110.00

Course Description

This 1-day training will introduce clinicians to a framework of shame as an emotion that is both triggered by and healed in interpersonal relationships. The training will review, compare, and contrast shame versus guilt with the intent to help learners identify the pros/cons of both emotions. Various conceptualizations of shame will be reviewed with a focus on psychodynamic and family systems’ theories and the role of the ego in the creation of and healing of shame. An exploration of the bidirectional relationship between shame and trauma will be reviewed. Implications for treatment will be explored in order to support providers in treating shame with their patients through a systematic approach designed to identify patient values. Learners will also be provided ways to identify their own shame in order to mitigate countertransference and remain “safe” as providers.
