Workshop 1:
Using a compassionate mind to work with shame-based trauma memories in PTSD

Presenter: Dr Deborah Lee

Shame-based trauma memories are highly distressing. The personal meaning conveyed in fragmented images and flashbacks is often painful, condemning and shaming. This workshop will introduce the use of a compassion focused approach as a way to work with the effect of shame, especially in the context of shame-based flashbacks.

She is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist specialising in the treatment of PTSD and complex trauma. Her clinical and research interest is in shame-based PTSD and self-criticism.
