Transforming Shame and Self-Loathing with Janina Fisher, Ph.D.

August 24, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

This webinar will introduce participants to understanding shame from a neurobiological perspective—as a survival strategy driving somatic responses of “total submission,” disconnection, and numbing.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the biological role of shame and self-loathing
  • Define the difference between healthy shame and “toxic shame”
  • Describe two ways of challenging shame-related cognitive schemas


I. The neurobiology of shame and its purpose

II: Shame and the body

III:  Mindfulness in the treatment of shame

IV: Addressing shame as a traumatized child part


This event will be recorded and the link to the recording will be sent to all registrants afterwards.
