Working with Shame in Psychotherapy and Psychological Assessment

Friday, September 27, 2013, from 8:30am to 5:00pm


In this two-day intensive workshop, Dr. Stephan Finn, founder of the Center for Therapeutic Assessment in Austin, Texas, will lecture about contemporary research and theory about shame and discuss implications for applied clinical work. He will show videotapes of working with clients around shame, and will teach a number of specific, effective interventions that can help clients heal shame. At various points during the day, participants will work in small groups doing role plays of these shame interventions. Finally, Dr. Finn will discuss shame in clinicians, and how it both limits our effectiveness and gives us empathy for our clients.


This workshop qualifies for 12 hours of CEU's for Licensed Clinical Professional Counselors, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists.
