Healing Shame: Relational Body-Centered Approaches to Promote Resilience

Mar 31, 2019 10:30am ‐ Mar 31, 2019 12:00pm


Description

Shame lives in the body. It originates in early childhood through verbal and nonverbal communication perceived as disapproving. It activates the body’s stress system, compromising self-regulation and promoting patterned behavior. We explore the interpersonal origins of shame; its impact on the body, nervous system, and social–emotional functioning; and somatic interventions to support healing. We emphasize the therapist’s use of self in forming a therapeutic alliance that serves as a foundation for change.

  • Understand the nature and role of body and the brain in creating, maintaining, and healing the experience of shame.
  • Identify and apply interventions that facilitate clients’ use of their body and brain to self-regulate and attain integration.
  • Understand the implications of using somatic interventions and therapist use of self and presence with clients suffering from shame.
