Working with Shame and Anger in Psychotherapy
with Dr. Leslie Greenberg
Core unhealthy shame is a major source of psychological distress and human suffering. Shame results in feelings of worthlessness and self- contempt, difficulties in interpersonal relationships, and problematic emotions such as unhealthy anger or rage. In contrast, assertive healthy anger is helpful and therapeutic to change core shame. As a therapist, knowing how to access assertive anger is fundamental in transforming shame as is accessing the sadness of grief related to childhood unmet needs.
Through the psychotherapeutic process, adaptive emotions are accessed to transform maladaptive emotions, and the therapist helps clients to develop positive identity and relationship narratives. This workshop is based on Emotion-Focused Therapy’s flexible treatment tenets and principles of change which can be viewed as a transdiagnostic approach to treatment, across many clinical populations and has been demonstrated to be an empirically validated approach to treatment.
