  • Dr. Judith Herman's Talk: PTSD as a Shame Disorder (+)

    5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
    Chicago Campus, Rm16-100



    We will be watching Dr. Herman's webinar and having a discussion afterward led by Dr. Henning. Come join us and learn what's new in the field of trauma. Goals of Webinar: 1. Identify adaptive developmental and social functions of shame. 2. Discuss maladaptive forms of shame in complex trauma. 3. Apply familiar with effective therapeutic approaches to shame in trauma survivors. This webinar will explore the central role of shame in complex trauma. PTSD was initially classified as an anxiety disorder. Pathological neuroses have been demonstrated in PTSD, and effective treatments have been developed aimed at reducing symptoms of pathologic fear. However, this fails to capture an essential characteristic of those traumas that are of human design, especially those that are repeated over an extended period of time.

    Participants include students, faculty and staff of the Adler School, members of the greater Chicagoland community, anyone interested in learning more about social exclusion. Participants adopt authentic Chicago-based case histories of formerly incarcerated women and are tasked with re-entering society – finding a place to live, a job, healthcare and other necessities – in the face of structural and systemic barriers.

    Participant outcomes include:

    • An increased understanding of what structural and systemic barriers are and how they work to undermine opportunity and access.
    • Increased appreciation of practical limits of personal responsibility, agency, and choice.
    • Increased motivation to adopt attitudinal and behavioral changes in pursuit of social change.
    • Increased empathy for other marginalized groups.
    • Apprehend the shock and disappointment about roadblocks of re-entry.
