Course Description:

Shame … have you noticed how it sticks like super glue to our clients and acts as a barrier to trauma resolution?

Even after effective trauma treatment, shame and self-loathing can interfere with our clients’ full participation in life.

Join world-renowned complex trauma and attachment expert Janina Fisher, PhD, as she reveals today’s most effective modalities for treating shame and self-loathing in trauma clients.

The body-oriented interventions featured in this 2-day certificate workshop will help clients relate to their symptoms with mindful dual awareness and curiosity so that, when integrated with traditional psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and EMDR techniques, issues of shame can become an avenue to transformation rather than a source of stuckness.

If you are frustrated with the lack of treatment success with traumatized clients with chronic shame, this workshop will provide the solutions for long-term healing.

Key Benefits of Attending:
  • Discover how shame complicates trauma treatment and how addressing shame can help you expedite recovery.
  • Help clients get unstuck, transform shame, and improve treatment outcomes.
  • Teach clients to manage shame without resorting to destructive measures.
  • Reduce judgmental thoughts and reactivity with mindfulness.
  • Cultivate secure self-attachment and self-acceptance.
  • Build resiliency to shame with interventions based on empathy, forgiveness and compassion.

  1. Describe the neurobiological effects of traumatic experience.
  2. Recognize role of autonomic arousal in exacerbating symptoms.
  3. Identify animal defense survival responses in trauma clients.
  4. Evaluate the effects of shame and self-loathing symptoms, and identify how these symptoms inform treatment interventions.
  5. Determine the impact of the neurobiological effects of shame observed in clinical practice.
  6. Evaluate cognitive schemas and its clinical implications.
  7. Articulate the principles of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and how they relate to clinical treatment.
  8. Apply simple yet effective clinical interventions drawn from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy to alleviate shame symptoms in clients.
  9. Utilize cognitive-behavioral techniques to reframe shame-based cognitive schemas.
  10. Integrate mindfulness-based techniques to inhibit client’s self-judgment.
  11. Describe a somatic approach to resolving chronic shame.
