Shamed and Shaming:

Their Role in the Experience and Treatment of Trauma (3CE)*

Friday, November 9, 2018

1:00 - 4:30 pm

This workshop will explore the dynamics and consequences of shaming, being shamed, and feeling shameful through a combination of demonstrations, experiential exercises and a power-point presentation. 

Through the lens of internal family systems therapy (IFS), which sees the normal human mind as being made up of parts with different functions, Dr. Sweezy will present options for treating the shame dynamics that develop following trauma.
