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.
