ASORC: Recorded webinar: Why a trauma-informed approach requires shame-sensitive practice

Monday 7 November, 2022 @ 8:00 am - Tuesday 7 November, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

Do you provide trauma-informed services to clients? 

ASORC is delighted to introduce international speaker, Associate Professor Luna Dolezal, from the University of Exeter UK, who has prepared a special (recorded) webinar to introduce the concept of shame and how understanding its effects is central to achieving trauma-informed practice.

Shame is a core after effect of traumatic experiences, and until now has not been part of the conceptualisation of trauma-informed approaches, nor an explicit focus in its practice.

This webinar recording will demonstrate how having shame competence, and the emotional intelligence that shame-competence affords, will give you greater awareness to provide trauma-informed practice with more empathy, humanity and sensitivity.

A/Profesor Dolezal leads two major research projects that investigate how shame is relevant in healthcare and public health: ‘Shame and Medicine‘ and ‘Scenes of Shame and Stigma in COVID-19’. Part of her research has been to consider the relevance of shame in experiences of trauma and post-trauma states. Along with her research team, the aim of Luna’s current research is to develop principles of ‘shame-sensitive practice’ that can be applied within healthcare contexts, and also within other care and social services.

Due to UK/Australia time difference, A/Professor Dolezal will provide the recording for viewing at your convenience. Viewers of this recording will have the opportunity to submit questions through ASORC for A/Professor Dolezal to provide further information and clarification.

If you are new to trauma-informed practice, or have been using this approach for some time, this webinar is not to be missed!

Recording available from 7 November 2022.
