Shame and Dissociation in Complex Trauma Disorder: Emerging Insights from the Empirical Literature
Total CE Credit Hours: 1.5
Course Info URL: http://www.ce-credit.com/courses/102148
About the Course:
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). Empirical work is beginning to explore shame in complex trauma disorders and its link to both dissociation and relationship functioning (e.g., Dorahy et al., 2015). This webinar will explore that work after providing a basic, and necessarily limited, account of how shame is understood in the theoretical and empirical literatures. Interestingly, it will be noted that while shame is related to relationship outcomes like anxiety in intimate partnerships and fear of engaging in relationships, dissociation is also associated to relationship concerns. Several studies designed to progressively explore this issue will be discussed.
