The Profound Clinical Significance of Shame: Exploring this Taboo Issue with Clients and Ourselves
Shame is a topic important to us all. Though often avoided, minimized, not recognized, or mistaken for something else, it is of profound clinical significance. Because the nature of shame, is to hide, it is often so subtly presented, that it is missed by even the best clinicians. Brene Brown’s research resonates strongly with many clinicians, as she has given us a vocabulary to understand and explore this taboo topic. People are able to talk about a powerful force which was previously rarely openly discussed. The impact on those who study it, has been significant, allowing clients more freedom to recognize both internal and external judgments about themselves and others, to learn resilience and to let go. This, in turn, allows therapy to proceed more deeply and easily. Whether one is a clinically trained therapist or a client, both will benefit from an increased awareness not only about the ideas of shame, but also about its unique presence and impact on their lives. This greater awareness increases the likelihood that both clients and clinicians can develop more resilient responses to shame which can improve the quality of their lives.
Margaret Moore, LCSW has been in private practice for over 35 years. In her practice, which is located in Deerfield, she works psychodynamicly with individuals couples and groups. She received her MSW from the University of Washington, Seattle. She has also received advanced training at the Seattle Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. Her background working in emergency rooms, psychiatric and medical settings and substance-abuse research, has led her to develop broad interests in crisis intervention, grief work, reactions to physical illness and infidelity issues. Currently she is especially interested in applying attachment theory to understanding therapeutic relationships. She also facilitates consultation groups for practicing psychotherapists. In addition, she has offered several women’s groups with a focus on “A Room of One’s Own” and “An Examination of Authentic Beauty.” More recently she has lectured about and taught “Connections,” the official curriculum of Brene Brown’s research on shame and shame resilience.
