For decades the therapeutic work of PTSD was processing fear, helplessness and horror. Recently the DSM has expanded the definition of PTSD to include guilt and shame. Evidence-based research indicates that unprocessed/unresolved guilt and shame are risk factors for developing and maintaining PTSD symptoms as well as compromising the healing process for clients with Complex PTSD and Developmental Trauma.
In this workshop we will define guilt and shame and outline their similarities and differences. We will review the different subtypes of both emotions. We will review how we organize our conversations with clients and how we help clients face the unspoken needs and dilemmas that drive the guilt and shame experience.
Participants Will Learn To:• Understand the 7 Types of Guilt • Process conversations when: the client feels guilty but is not guilty; client has a distorted view of their role in a negative experience and when the client is guilty • Understand the 7 Types of Shame• Distinguish between Passing Through Shame and a Shame-Prone Identity• Pinpoint the source of a Shame-Based Identity and the 4 corresponding adaptations • Understand the connection between dissociation and shame• Understand Shame-Prone entrenched patterns and how to consciously change them
