This one-hour course was recorded live in the spring of 2010 at a conference of 500 line clinicians, affiliated with the County of San Mateo, California.  It was a plenary presentation designed to define, describe and delimit the critical role of shame in the lives of survivors of child abuse trauma.  The course begins with a definition of shame and the distinguishing of shame from other emotions, including embarrassment, humiliation, self-consciousness and guilt.  We then turn to a discussion of resilience, how it may be assessed and its role in the response to shame. We follow with shame-based dysfunction, as manifest in emotional, cognitive, self- and behavioral dysregulation.  Finally, we address the role of these impact of these dysregulations on interactions with clinicians, including traumatic transference and countertransference.
