About the Program:

Shame as a verb (shaming and feeling shameful) is a product of psychic multiplicity – and so is self-compassion. This workshop will explore how the plural mind can – and does – self-injure and self-heal.

About the Speaker:

Martha Sweezy, PhD, LICSW is an assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, a program consultant and supervisor at Cambridge Health Alliance, the former assistant director and director of training for the dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) program at the Cambridge Health Alliance, and has a therapy and consultation practice in Northampton, MA. She is co-editor and/or co-author of several books and articles on internal family systems therapy (IFS).

Learning Objectives: Participants will learn...

  • Two common motives for shaming
  • To notice life events that increase receptivity to shaming
  • The importance of practicing self-compassion as an antidote to internal as well as external shaming

Approved for 3 CEs for Social Workers. LMHCs applied for.
