Shame and Psychoanalysis: Better late than never!

Organised by:

West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy

27 April 2024

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Price: £85


What happens when therapists mistake shame for guilt?

In Talk 1 Simon will outline the history of shame as it appears in mythology, drama and literature and its slow emergence within analytic writings.

In Talk 2 Simon will speak about working with shame in the course of analytic therapy, signs of conscious and unconscious shame, defences against shame, and the possibilities that arise when the therapist’s own shame is activated.
