Guilt is about what somebody has done. Shame is about who somebody is. Clients with sexual and physical abuse have two problems: who they are, and what they have done. Wouldn’t most of people feel hopeless at that point? Wouldn’t most clinicians feel overwhelmed?
Resolving these two pervasive, paralyzing issues absolutely moves therapy forward but requires a host of psychotherapeutic interventions.
Watch Lisa Ferentz in this recording to learn cognitive, emotional, somatic, expressive, and psychoeducational techniques all used at key moments in therapy to have the fullest impact on resolving these pivotal issues. As a trauma therapist, author, and international presenter, Lisa Ferentz has spent 35 years working with the deepest levels of shame and guilt, honing integrated practices specific to the client’s readiness to address these intense emotions.
Case examples are woven in throughout the day to help you learn how guilt and shame surround unmetabolized traumatic experiences, including sexual abuse, and the profound and confusing dynamic of pleasure that occurs in many instances for male and female victims. The recording will include crafting psychoeducation with practical cognitive techniques, self-compassion, and even expressive modalities – in addition to experiential activities to help you create a treatment plan adapted to your specific clients and trauma treatment modality.
