For decades the therapeutic work of PTSD was processing 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 PTSD symptoms as well as compromising the healing process for clients with Complex PTSD and Developmental Trauma. In this workshop participants will learn how to define guilt and shame and outline their similarities and differences and review the different sub-types of both emotions. The facilitator will review with participants how to organize conversations with clients and how to help clients face the unspoken needs and dilemmas that drive the guilt and shame experience.
