Shame and the Disowned Self: Overcoming Internal Attachment Disorder



Many therapists believe the primary antidote to clients’ feelings of self-loathing, shame, and worthlessness is total acceptance and unconditional positive regard. But unfortunately, clients alienated from traumatized, disowned, or despised parts of themselves can’t internalize that message, no matter how hard the therapist tries. This interactive workshop will focus on an innovative approach to deeper healing that draws on Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, and ego-state work to help clients discover and connect with their most troubled and disowned selves. You’ll explore how to:

  • Help clients develop curiosity toward their child selves rather than overidentifying with parts that hate vulnerability
  • Access clients’ inherent empathy and compassion for others
  • Become an “attachment broker,” using visualization and somatic techniques to bring a mindful adult and wounded child together
  • Help clients understand the role of early attachment wounds in their presenting issues
