Time: 10 am – 1 pm | 3 CEs (Please arrive at 9:30 am for registration, refreshments and socialization.)
Location: Philadelphia (Rittenhouse Square), 19203
In this program, we will explore shame as an emotion and self-state, and its impact on human development, wellbeing, and clinical work. Participants will discuss the connection between attachment and toxic shame, and attachment and shame resilience. Participants will also consider the ways that unregulated shame can sabotage development of self and the therapy process. We will also discuss ways in which therapists can help clients to develop shame resilience through empathy, understanding and meeting clients’ self-object needs, parts work, and tending to the “here and now” in the therapeutic relationship.
- Participants will be able to recognize the presence of toxic shame in the client’s experience as well as in the therapy room.
- Participants will be able to list the relational origins of toxic shame and utilize this knowledge to provide responsive and empathic interventions.
- Participants will be able to identify concrete ways to help clients develop shame resilience.
- Participants will be able to tend to the “here and now” relationship as an effective intervention for the reduction of toxic shame.
