The Web of Shame in the Therapeutic Space

A one-day seminar with Christiane Sanderson

London, 26 January 2019 (Saturday)

Doubletree

As practitioners, we often witness that shame can become chronic or even toxic, having a crippling effect on our clients, especially those who carry the burden of intergenerational shame and are raised in shame prone families, or who have histories of abandonment, prolonged or systematic emotional, physical or sexual abuse, neglect or exposure to domestic violence. Our therapeutic interactions can be even more complicated if there exists practitioner shame that we are either not aware of or haven’t fully addressed.

At this practical and unique seminar which would be relevant for psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists and psychiatrists, across modalities, Christiane draws on her extensive experience in working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse to examine the complex nature of shame, its origins, its functions and its long-term effects, to explain how we can:

  • distinguish between healthy and chronic shame, shame and guilt – while looking at their relationships to hubristic and authentic pride
  • assist our clients through the process of defences against shame – these defences could be manifest as withdrawal, attacking self, avoidance and attacking others and bear linkages to self-harm, addictions, repugnant obsessions, perfectionism, narcissism, grandiosity, rage and violence
  • identify our own patterns of shame and the impact these might be having on our therapeutic relationships
  • build shame resilience for clients and ourselves through specific therapeutic techniques

Through experiential exercises, case vignettes and emphasis on creative, right brain-based exercises such as the embodiment of shame, unpeeling the masks of shame, use of nesting dolls, re-apportioning shame and compassion focused exercises; the seminar allows us to promote healing, restore authentic pride and build shame resilience, while minimising the risk of re-shaming our clients.
