PTSD as a Shame Disorder

Date: 
Tuesday, October 14, 2014
Time: 
1:00 - 2:30 p.m. CDT
Location: 
Online
Sponsoring Agency: 
International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS)
Description: 

PTSD was initially classified as an anxiety disorder in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders of the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-III, 1980; DSM-IV, 1994). This designation led to a productive investigation of the neurobiology of fear. Pathological neuroses have been demonstrated in PTSD, and effective treatments have been developed aimed at reducing symptoms of pathologic fear. However, this fails to capture an essential characteristic of those traumas that are of human design, especially those that are repeated over an extended period of time. In these cases, where a relationship of dominance and subordination is established, feelings of humiliation, degradation, and shame are central to the victim’s experience. The result can be viewed as both as an anxiety disorder and a shame disorder. This webinar will explore the central role of shame in complex trauma.

Learning Objectives
1. Identify adaptive developmental and social functions of shame.
2. Discuss maladaptive forms of shame in complex trauma.
3. Apply effective therapeutic approaches to shame in trauma survivor

Trauma-Informed Care: Change the Culture to Change the Outcome

Date: 
Tuesday, October 14, 2014
Time: 
12-1:30pm
Location: 
Washington, DC
Sponsoring Agency: 
National Center on Family Homelessness: National Collaborative of Homeless Children & Trauma
Description: 

Traumatic stress from such events as child abuse, homelessness or interpersonal violence can have life-long damaging effects on health, learning and social-development if it goes unaddressed. Advances in awareness and knowledge of the prevalence and impact of traumatic stress have led to a call to action by federal agencies, researchers and service providers to implement “trauma-informed care” across service systems. The growing consensus is that this approach can benefit children and youth, families and individuals, and civilians and veterans.

What is trauma-informed care? How is it different from trauma-specific services? How does it change the culture of organizations and service systems? What is needed to implement it? And, most important, what is its impact?  

The American Institutes for Research is hosting a luncheon discussion to explore these questions. You are invited to join an expert panel for an interactive dialogue on how to bring trauma-informed care to scale across service systems.
