The Relational Nature of Shame: A Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Perspective

led by creator of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and SPI founder Dr. Pat Ogden

Exploring and resolving shame, especially pre-verbal, implicit and chronic shame, has always been challenging even for the most effective therapist-client dyads. Shame is a painful interpersonal emotion that develops in relationship with caregivers, significant other people, society at large, and is impacted by historical and racialized trauma.

This workshop explores the roots of shame including early relationships, privilege/oppression dynamics and historical trauma, and elucidates its impact on the body and nervous system, on patterns of emotions, thoughts and beliefs, and on relationships:
