Shame and trauma are both states of freeze. Shame, like trauma, puts the body in a freeze state and lowers the ability to think and act clearly. Shame almost always accompanies trauma—and being shamed can have a traumatic effect. In working with trauma, there is a tendency to miss the shame component that is often hiding in plain sight. And shame can be worked with most successfully as a form of trauma, utilizing many somatic techniques. Shame is also a primary emotion. And it has a strong cognitive component—the belief that “something is wrong with me”—that needs to be addressed.
Being able to understand and have compassion for the parts of the person that are still frozen in shame and trauma helps us be able to sit with a client without having our own shame triggered. In this workshop, we will explore the connection between shame and trauma and look at ways to unlock somatic and imaginal resources to work with both effectively.
