Understanding Shame in the Therapeutic Relationship 30th June 2018


Understanding Shame in the Therapeutic Relationship 30th June 2018



Shame is a psychological process which can cripple a client’s progress within therapy. It can also be easily triggered by a therapist’s well-meant gesture.

As soon as we mention shame, our own shame is triggered so this workshop will consider the therapist’s response to their own shame within the therapy room.

Within this workshop the relational basis of shame will be defined and explored. Participants will have an opportunity to bring cases from their practice.

 Learning objectives;

  •  For participants to be able to identify the signs of shame they may see in their client’s non-verbal communication and thought processes.

  •  For participants to identify two or three theoretical concepts of shame and how to use them with regards to a client.

  •  For participants to be able to talk about shaming experiences within their work. There will be an opportunity for supervision of client work.

  • To allow discussion on a topic which is often not talked about.

  •  Using case study material, we will look at the concepts of transference and counter-transference.
