Mentalizing is the process by which we make sense of the contents of our own minds and that of others. Requiring an optimal level of arousal as well as a nurturing and safe attachment relationship to develop, mentalizing is conspicuously impaired and even frightening for patients who have suffered attachment trauma. Mentalizing requires the capacity to be present, to accurately read relational cues, and to be mindful and tolerant of one’s own inner experiences.

This webinar will explore the emerging empirical literature on shame and dissociation in complex trauma disorders. Clinical and theoretical accounts have long noted the challenges in working with shame in individuals exposed to interpersonal violence, and more recent work espouses the importance of working with shame (e.g, Chefetz, 2015; Herman, 2011; Kluft, 2007).

Fragmentation of the sense of self maintains children’s attachment to abusive caregivers by disowning themselves as “bad” or “unlovable.”   This deeply painful failure of self-acceptance results in lifelong shame and self-loathing, difficulty self-soothing, and chronic dissociative symptoms and disorders.  Without internal compassion, it is difficult to take in the compassion and acceptance of others, complicating relationships.
