Short Course 42 – Susan Warren Warshow, MSW – DEFTly Penetrating Defenses and Surmounting Shame: An Accelerated, Relational Psychodynamic Model emphasizing Depth Emotion Processing and Integration

In this workshop therapists will be introduced to a powerful, somatic and emotion focused dynamic approach to psychotherapy that integrates evidence based therapeutic models. It aims to overcome barriers to the change process, including defenses and defense driven affects (e.g. toxic forms of shame, anxiety and guilt). Therapists will be introduced to targeted interventions carefully crafted to disarm defenses and surmount shame and facilitate the integration of buried affect central to the treatment of anxiety, depression and other manifestations of trauma-related suffering.

Educational Objectives

  1. Identify steps in a process leading to depth emotion uncovering and integration.
  2. Explain verbal and non-verbal elements of shame sensitive interventions and the conveyance of compassion.
  3. Describe interventions employed to diminish dysregulated forms of shame, anxiety, guilt and defense.
