About the program: This workshop will focus on sociocultural issues and contexts affecting trauma survivors' experiences and responses. Dr. Tummala-Narra will explain how sociocultural context, including the current political climate in the U.S., influences the ways in which traumatic stress is experienced and how survivors conceptualize healing and recovery. She will describe how sociocultural trauma, such as racial trauma and political trauma affects the lives of survivors, and will cover critical issues in providing psychotherapy to trauma survivors from diverse sociocultural backgrounds, with particular attention to the dynamics of the therapeutic relationship (e.g., transference, counter-transference).

About the program: Feeling shamed and then shameful is arguably the most disturbing and uncomfortable of all human emotions. The hallmark of intimacy is the willingness and ability to share oneself with another, but feeling shameful blocks the vulnerability necessary for intimacy and strands us in protective cycles of blame, hopelessness, and despair.
This workshop will provide a brief overview of the Intimacy from the Inside out© method of IFS couple therapy with an emphasis on how toxic shame affects intimate relationships.
Toni Herbine-Blank MS, RN is a Senior Trainer for the IFS Institute and developer of the Intimacy from the Inside Out© curriculum for couple therapists. She presents on the topic of shame in relationship nationally and internationally. Toni lives and practices in Durango, Colorado with her husband Jordan and a menagerie of animals.
