Shame, Pride, and Relational Trauma: Concepts and Psychotherapy

Shame, Pride, and Relational Trauma: Concepts and Psychotherapy

Saturday, September 10th @ 9:00 AM -12:00 PM, 3CE



Shame and pride emotions and traumatic states are central in psychotherapy with relational trauma (RT). Shame, pride, and dissociation; “pro-being pride”, an antidote to shame states; shame state reactivity and therapeutic responsivity; and psychotherapy with a RT survivor moving from shame state to pro-being pride, are all discussed with participants.

Ken Benau, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist with a private practice in psychotherapy, consultation, and training in Kensington, CA.  Dr. Benau now works primarily with adults in individual and couple therapy from an integrative perspective.  Dr. Benau has expertise in psychotherapy with children and adults with learning and developmental differences, including those diagnosed with LD, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.  Dr. Benau has written several peer reviewed articles and a recently published book (Routledge, 2022) on shame and pride in psychotherapy with survivors of relational trauma.
