Presenter: Susan Anderson
These workshops offer 2 Continuing Education Credits
This webinar is recorded and will not grant live credits.
In this seminar we examine shame as a universal vein that runs beneath the surface of human experience. Shame is a pivotal feature of post traumatic stress disorder of abandonment. It is easily triggered, yet its impact on our emotions and behavior can remain subliminal to conscious awareness. Due to its stigmatized nature and its submerged position within the personality, many of our clients lack a language with which to articulate shame and release its impact on their self-esteem and quality of life. This workshop will provide *didactic review the abandonment’s post traumatic responses and the origins of primal shame and fear; *techniques for helping our clients overcome shame’s interference in their relationships and goal achievement; and *opportunity for discussion and processing.
Present didactic material about shame’s relationship to abandonment trauma and methodologies for helping our clients work through their issues of shame, reducing its impact on their behaviors and quality of life.
