Shame: Attachment and Relational Perspectives for Psychotherapists, Part I
 
This session will first focus on shame as a behavioral system: links to attachment, defense, and dysregulation.  This will be followed by caring for the human spirit in pride and shame and seeking kindness from birth.  There will be a discussion of primary shame and attackments: subjugation, shame, and the attachment to painful affects and objects.  The accompanying journal article discusses the vicious cycle of traumatic narcissism and dissociative depression, including the associations between narcissism, childhood trauma, dissociation and attachment styles. There will be an opportunity to present case reports.
