For decades, the therapeutic work of PTSD was to process fear, helplessness and horror. Recently the DSM has expanded the definition of PTSD to include guilt and shame. Evidence-based research indicates that unprocessed/unresolved guilt and shame are risk factors for developing and maintaining PTDS symptoms as well as compromising the healing process for clients with Complex PTSD and Developmental Trauma.
In this workshop, we will define guilt and shame and outline their similarities and differences. We will review the different subtypes of both emotions. We will review how we organize our conversations with clients and how we help clients face the unspoken needs and dilemmas that drive the guilt and shame experience.
